Tasty Egg Curry.

Egg curry is one of those tasty recipes that come to the rescue on a busy weeknight, or when you do not feel like cooking much. It is also cheap to make, as you use what you already have there with you. Eggs, spices of choice, onions, tomatoes. That’s all.


  1. 10 hard boiled eggs.
  2. 2 large sliced onions.
  3. Crushed garlic.
  4. 2 large tomatoes sliced, and a tbsp of tomato paste.
  5. Spices : 1 tsp each of black mustard seed and cumin seeds, curry powder, a pinch of turmeric and garam masala.
  6. Salt and pepper to taste, and a pinch of sugar.
  7. A cup of water.
  8. 1 tbsp cooking oil.
  9. Coriander leaves to garnish.
Heat your oil in a pan and add the cumin and mustard seeds.
Add in the onions, let cook till a bit browned the add the garlic and mix well.
Add in your spices, then the tomatoes and tomato paste, and a pinch of sugar. Let them cook down for a while on medium low heat. The tomatoes will release their juices and the oil will start leaving the sides of the pot.
Using a fork, pierce your eggs all round, gently though. Add your eggs, and the cup of water if the sauce is too thick and looks like it will burn.

Let the eggs cook for a few minutes till they are heated through.

Once ready, add the coriander leaves and serve with your sides of choice.
Served it with some celery rice and grilled plantain.

The beauty of this dish is you can spice and add on to it what you want. You can add coconut milk or even tamarind, chillies, it is all up to your choice of flavours.

Try it and enjoy a simple meal that is colourful, tasty and nutritious too.
