One of the easiest curry side dishes, egg curry can be quickly prepared and served with roti, bread, or rice for a hearty meal.


  • Boiled Eggs: 4 (keep aside)
  • Bay Leaf: 1
  • Cardamon: 3
  • Cloves: 3
  • Peppercorns: 3
  • Oil: 4 tbsp
  • Kashmiri Chilli Powder: 2 tsp
  • Coriander Powder: 2 tsp
  • Organic Turmeric: 1/2 tsp
  • Garam Masala: 1/2 tsp
  • Tomatoes: 2, grind to a paste
  • Water: 2 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Handful of Chopped coriander leaves


  • Onion: 2
  • Ginger: 1 inch
  • Garlic: 5-7 cloves
  • Cinnanon: Lesser than 1/4 inch
  • cloves: 2
  • Sauf: 3/4 tsp


  1. Add onion, ginger, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, saunf into a blender and blend to a fine paste.
  2. Puree the two tomatoes and keep aside.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet or iron kadai with oil. Add in bay leaf, cloves, cardamon, and peppercorns. Add in the grounded onion paste. Once it is heated up reduce the flame and saute till it starts to brown.
  4. Add in Kashmiri chilli powder, coriander, and turmeric powder. Mix well on low flame.
  5. Pour in the pureed tomato and mix well. Add salt.
  6. Allow it to saute on low/medium flame until the raw flavor diminishes and oil starts coming out. It took about 10-15 minutes for me.
  7. Add water, allow it to boil and add in the garam masala. Sprinkle with coriander leaves. Lastly add in boiled eggs.


I personally refrain from adding 4 tbsp of oil for everyday cooking; but added since I wanted to serve to my guests; still I feel 4 tbsp is a little less as I had to saute on low flame to see a speck of oil coming out of the masala. If 2 more tbsp of oil is added; the curry would taste very restaurant like and more tasty. Heat retention is high on iron kadai; thus makes the cooking faster. Some folks like to saute or lightly fry the boiled egg in oil with little chilli and turmeric powder; but I personally avoid it as the outer part of the egg will be a bit hard. Adjust water to suit your gravy consistency.
