    How to cook Egg Curry :

  • Dry roast shredded coconut and cumin seeds together till the coconut changes colour to light brown.
  • Keep this mixture aside to cool down.
  • Once cooled, grind the coconut mixture along with 1/2 cup coriander leaves to a fine paste.
  • Do not add water. Keep this paste aside.
  • Meanwhile in a pan heat oil.
  • Add cinnamon stick (Dalchini), 1 slit green chilly and finely chopped onions and saute till onions are translucent.
  • Do not brown the onions.
  • Now add ginger garlic paste and saute the mixture till raw smell of ginger garlic fades away.
  • Add finely chopped tomatoes and cook till tomatoes are tender.
  • Once onion and tomato mixture is cooked, add the coconut coriander paste that we blended and 1/4 cup of water.
  • Mix well.
  • Cook till oil starts separating from the coconut paste mixture.
  • Now add red chilli powder, coriander powder, chicken or mutton masala and salt. Mix well.
  • Check for seasoning at this stage.
  • Add 3 cups of water or as per your preference depending on how much thick curry you require.
  • Boil this curry for 5-7 minutes on medium flame.
  • Once the oil starts to appear on surface of the curry add in the hard boiled eggs.
  • (If you want you can slit the eggs into 2 halves, do not cut all the way thru, just till center of the egg is enough so that the curry can seep into it).
  • Let the eggs simmer in the gravy for 5-7 minutes. Keep on stirring occasionally.
  • Egg Curry is ready!
  • Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with Roti, Rice or Bread. While serving squeeze little lemon juice in the egg curry.
