Egg curry is yet another thing that I didn’t know existed until we came to India. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen it on a menu in South Asia but our ayah used to cook it for us and we couldn’t get enough of it.
I love collecting Indian recipes and this boiled egg curry is now in my repertoire. It’s a pretty simple and standard egg masala recipe and, assuming you have access to authentic Indian spices, I’m sure even a beginner cook can whip this up.
Boiled Egg Curry Recipe
- boiled eggs
- indian spices (turmeric, coriander, masalas)
First, boil some eggs. Pretty easy.
Chop up some onion and garlic, as usual. I don’t think any dish our ayah ever cooked didn’t start with garlic and onions in oil.
Peel your boiled eggs and give them a little roll in some turmeric powder.
Now fry them briefly in oil. Just enough to give them a little texture.
Now throw your onions and garlic in your oil and give ’em a nice cooking.
Cut up a couple of tomatoes and add to the mix.
Add your standard Indian seasonings. Salt, coriander powder, turmeric, kitchen king blend, maybe some garam masala. Don’t be shy here.
Peel and cut up a couple of potatoes and toss them in, too.
Occasionally had some water as things cook down. More water = more soup for spooning over your rice. The amount is really your call.
Add your eggs back to your pan and serve over rice. NOM NOM NOM

I knew that I liked Indian food but we’ve become complete converts since arriving in Asia. I pretty much only cook Indian now. If you have the right spices most Indian recipes are really quite easy. I know we’re going to miss this stuff fiercely when we get back to the states. I’m going to have to find an Asian market so that I can find all the ingredients to make my favorite dishes.
