Egg Curry is my top favorite, flavorful and easy dish when it comes to making dinner in hurry. Even though classic egg curry is staple in my house, I often look out for ideas to make different and easy egg curry variations.

This masala egg curry recipe is no-gravy variation of classic Egg Curry in gravy recipe that I posted few years back. Especially great when you want to enjoy some curry and eggs but do not have yogurt to make gravy.

Masala Egg Curry
Ready in 20 minutes, you can never go wrong with this simple yet scrumptious recipe.

And now about leftovers (if you are lucky to leave some for next day). Fry pre-cooked rice in this masala egg curry to make delicious curried egg fried rice. (will post this recipe sometime). Or Top masala egg curry on toasted baguette to serve as appetizers. Since this curry has no liquid gravy, you can use leftovers many different ways.

In-fact, I would not mind making masala egg curry specially just for appetizers.
