Hello My Dear Wonderful Readers,

How have the holidays been? I haven’t had time to make a decent meal for the past few days. Cleaning up the house, in turn falling sick and managing the little one has been the only thing I can find time for. So this recipe is my easy egg curry recipe and yes I cheated, I bought the Wheat Malabar Paratha from the store cause I couldn’t find time to make that as well too. So here is my recipe for the simple and easy boiled egg curry for weeknight dinners!

Ingredients –

  1. Eggs – 5
  2. Onions – 3 medium size – julienned
  3. Tomatoes – 3 small – chopped fine
  4. Curry Leaves – 8 – 10
  5. Ginger Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp
  6. Chilli Powder – 1 tbsp
  7. Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp
  8. Green Chilli – 3 slit into half
  9. Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
  10. Cumin Seeds – 1/tsp
  11. Oil – 1 tsp
  12. Water – to boil the eggs + 1/2 cup

Instructions :-

  1. Boil water in a pot and add one tsp of salt. When the water begins to boil, slowly immerse the eggs with the help of a spoon. Boil for 10 mins till nice and hard boiled
  2. Then drain the water out and set aside to cool. Once cooled, de shell the eggs. The eggs are ready
  3. Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds
  4. When the seeds begins to splutter add cumins seeds
  5. Then add onions and fry till translucent. Add ginger garlic paste to the onions and fry for 3 mins
  6. Then add chilli powder, turmeric powder, curry leaves and tomatoes
  7. Once you see that the tomatoes are nice and soft, add the chillies and fry for 10 mins on medium heat
  8. Add half a cup of water at this stage
  9. When you see the mixture start to turn light brown, add the boiled eggs. Stir well to coat the eggs with the masala and cover and cook for another 5 mins
  10. After 5 mins season with salt and pepper ( optional) and serve right away
