Egg curry recipe, how to make egg curry with step by step pictures.

Egg curry or ande curry is one of the easiest side dish you can whip up in under 30 minutes. Egg curry is a perfect side dish with roti, bread, or even hot rice.

Egg curry is always a life saver for me when I have unexpected guests; a few days back I got a call from Homey, two of his friends are coming along with him and to get dinner ready ASAP! well, as usual I'd feel faint! .. while trying to "focus" as to what is available in my pantry and fridge.....and yes, they would be empty! no frozen meat or fish in the freezer too.

Eggs! egg curry and roti...and raita, salad...perfect! I know this happens to us most of the time and eggs are always life savers....thankfully when someone visits us, my cookie jar would be empty, my fridge would look so clean because it is empty....I just dont understand the logic behind this...I mean when my fridge is full and my cookie jar is filled...I'd long for someone to visit us....but yes, the moment everything is over...someone does knock!

So, today I am sharing my easy egg curry; made simple with onion, tomatoes and some spices....and so easy!

how to make egg curry with step by step pictures.
Serves: 4
Boil 4 eggs and keep aside.

egg curry recipe

Heat oil in an iron kadai or cast iron skillet pan, add in bay leaf, cardamon, cloves, and peppercorns. Then add in the ground onion paste and mix well. Allow it to saute on medium to low flame till it starts to brown. It took about 7 minutes for me.

Add in Kashmiri chilli powder, coriander, and turmeric powder. Mix well on low flame.

Pour in the pureed tomato and mix well. Add salt.

Allow it to saute on low/medium flame until the raw flavor diminishes and oil starts coming out. It took about 10-15 minutes for me.

Add water, allow it to boil and add in the garam masala. Sprinkle with coriander leaves. Lastly add in boiled eggs.

  INGREDIENTS

  • Boiled Eggs: 4 (keep aside)

  • Coriander Powder: 2 tsp
  • Organic Turmeric: 1/2 tsp
  • Garam Masala: 1/2 tsp
  • Tomatoes: 2, grind to a paste
  • Water: 2 cups
  • Salt to taste
  • Handful of Chopped coriander leaves
  • To GRIND:
  • Onion: 2
  • Ginger: 1 inch
  • Garlic: 5-7 cloves
  • Cinnanon: Lesser than 1/4 inch
  • cloves: 2
  • Sauf: 3/4 tsp


  METHOD:

  1. Add onion, ginger, garlic, cloves, cinnamon, saunf into a blender and blend to a fine paste.
  2. Puree the two tomatoes and keep aside.
  3. Heat a cast iron skillet or iron kadai with oil. Add in bay leaf, cloves, cardamon, and peppper. Add in the grounded onion paste. Once it is heated up reduce the flame and saute till it starts to brown.
  4. Add in Kashmiri chilli powder, coriander, and turmeric powder. Mix well on low flame.
  5. Pour in the pureed tomato and mix well. Add salt.
  6. Allow it to saute on low/medium flame until the raw flavor diminishes and oil starts coming out. It took about 10-15 minutes for me.
  7. Add water, allow it to boil and add in the garam masala. Sprinkle with coriander leaves. Lastly add in boiled eggs.

NOTES

  • I personally refrain from adding 4 tbsp of oil for everyday cooking; but added since I wanted to serve to my guests; still I feel 4 tbsp is a little less as I had to saute on low flame to see a speck of oil coming out of the masala. If 2 more tbsp of oil is added; the curry would taste very restaurant like and more tasty.
  • Heat retention is high on iron kadai; thus makes the cooking faster.
  • Some folks like to saute or lightly fry the boiled egg in oil with little chilli and turmeric powder; but I personally avoid it as the outer part of the egg will be a bit hard.Adjust water to suit your gravy consistency.

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
