Egg Curry

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.

    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.

  4. 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!!
