Egg is a versatile cooking ingredient. Many people who do not eat meat eat eggs. Delicious and quick this curry can be ready in 25 minutes. I call it easiest curry and everyone’s favorite. Meat lovers adore it and eggetarian vegetarians like it too.

If you have leftover eggs from devil eggs served for a party, you still can make curry with leftovers and enjoy a quick meal with Rice and Eggs. Kids love it for taste of eggs and moms love it because it is healthy for kids.

A nice change of pace and convenient on those days when I might have forgotten to thaw out the meat that I planned to cook in evening. Try this recipe and your family will fall in love with it.

Garnish egg curry with coriander leaves and serve hot with paratha, roti or rice for Lunch or Dinner.

  • Step for Recipe - Egg Curry 1. Heat oil in pan, add cumin seeds. when these start sputtering, add onion and fry until light brown in color (4-5 minutes). Now, add ginger, garlic, green chilies. Fry for 2 minutes. Add turmeric and red chill powder and fry for a minute.
    Step for Recipe - Egg Curry 2. Now add grated tomato, coriander powder and salt. Fry until oil separates.
  • Step for Recipe - Egg Curry 3. Remove pan from heat and let the mixture cool for some time. Now add yogurt, 1 tbsp at a time and mix after each addition until all yogurt is mixed. Turn on heat and cook for 3-4 minutes continuously stirring the mixture. If gravy looks very thick, add water (2-3 tbsp) to adjust consistency and cook 2-3 minute more. Additional Notes: It is important that you stir mixture continuously while adding yogurt, a little at a time. Or you can also blend this mixture with yogurt in blender or food processor. This process insures yogurt does not curdle.
    Step for Recipe - Egg Curry 4. Turn off the heat and add eggs to the gravy. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Chapati or Rice.
Savita's Notes:

Note: If you have never cooked with yogurt. Use the food processor to blend yogurt with curry. This curry has traditional tangy flavor due to yogurt and tomatoes. If you looking for creamy sweet curry like restaurants, use heavy cream instead of yogurt. Or try my other recipe, Egg Curry Tikka Masala from suggestions.

  1. I made this the other day and it was wonderful! My family loved it! Since then, my husband has learned he is allergic to tomatoes. I wondered if you might have any suggestions for a good substitute? I’m thinking of maybe adding some beef or veggie broth for the liquid, and maybe some black beans for substance? Just wondering if I should add some extra seasonings too, and or if there are some other things you might recommend. Thank you.
  2. Thank you so much, as a university student this is cheap, easy and nutritious!
  3. Why there is no curry powder in this egg curry?
    This is traditionally every-day egg curry in Indian homes with base of blend of simple spices listed in ingredients list. Not every Indian curry needs curry powder. In-fact few spices listed are used in curry powder.
  4. Thank u so much for sharing this yummy recipe. It was really tasty.
  5. very nice
  6. This is really good. I used sour cream instead of yoghurt because thats what i had and it worked well.
  7. Hi Savita. Is red pepper powder the same as chilli powder? Please forgive my ignorance.
    Hi Will, yes, red pepper powder is chili powder. In India, red pepper is commonly used to refer red chili and actual red peppers are not even easily available. I’m happy you figured it out. I’ll update this in description. Thanks for pointing out. Also, thanks for sharing your experience of trying egg curry. I’m glad you enjoyed.
  8. I will eat it over and over. Really nice proportions of spices for 2 people. I find that aspect of cooking difficult to judge but this was perfect for me. No bitterness at all. I loved the seasoning but I think my wife might have found it a little bit salty. Next time I’ll try 3/4 teaspoon. I will happily cook this for friends. Thank you so much.
  9. Thanks for such a great recipe. I could not print it. (osx browser: safari)

    Denzil, I'm glad your wife loved egg curry so much. Thanks for sharing your feedback and trying this recipe.I appreciate it.
  14. I've made this a few times now and now I'm at the point where I buy a tub of yoghurt just to make batches of this. It goes well with other proteins, have tried prawns and tofu so far and I'm sure it's be lovely with paneer. Its quick to make and doesn't stink the house out like other spicy recipes tend to, I freeze down batches and its a quick defrost. Thanks!!
    Hi Becci, without doubt, I can see how much you love this egg curry. :) You have surpassed my expectation of how much favorite this egg curry can be. I also like the idea of prawns and tofu. Thanks for sharing such sweet words and trying the recipe. Cheers! -Savita
  15. Nice picture; I added some garam masala and some deggi mirch, to add yoghurt was a good idea, loved it.
  16. A really tasty egg curry and easy to put together. I added coriander leaves as suggested and wouldn't omit them in future. Thank you.
    thanks, Graham! Indeed, coriander leaves add flavor to any curry.
  17. Is it fine to use curd in a egg recipe ? I learnt somewhere that egg and dairy doesnt go well ..
    Aratrika, I always yogurt in lot of my curries including egg curry. I'm not sure where you read that and I'm not right person to comment on significance of not using or using these two together.
  18. Just love it
    thanks, Zelda! I'm glad you enjoyed egg curry!
