This is a stolen recipe (!!!) stolen from a colleague’s wife. He gets yummilicious egg curry & today I called her up to get the recipe from her. I have made a few changes in her recipe.

I am total egg freak. I can eat it in any form, except raw (of course). It is a substitute for every food that I dont like………not that my list is a long one…….but still.

Here goes the recipe

Ing –

6 – Hard boiled eggs
2 – big onions (sliced thinly)
3 – big tomatoes (pureed)
5 – garlic flakes (grated)
1/2 inch – ginger (grated)
1/2 tsp – jeera / cumin seeds
1/2 tsp – mustard seeds / kadugu / sarson
1 tsp – turmeric powder
green chillies – according to taste
1 tsp – corriander powder
1 tsp – garam masala
1/4 cup – milk
corriander leaves to garnish

Method –
In a kadai (wok) heat a little oil & add the mustards seeds & cumin. Let them sputter.
Add the grated ginger & garlic
When done add the onions. Fry well till a nice pink colour
Add the tomato puree & a little salt for quicker cooking
When the oil separates, add powders & saute till done.
Add the milk & cook till it evaporates
Now slit all the egss into two. Out of these take two egg yolks & crumble them into the masala. Mix well & saute for about a minute.
Add the eggs into this masala & slowly mix well ensuring that the masala coats the eggs.
Let cook for another minute or two.
Garnish with corriander leaves

Serve with chappatis, parathas or even plain rice

    Hi Shella! I’m paired with you for the Taste & Create event this month. I decided to make this wonderful Egg Korma. You’ll find the photo and info on my blog.

    I think it turned out wonderful but will let you be the judge. I love Indian food and this was my first attempt at actually making a dish!
