  • 5 - Boiled Eggs, peeled
  • 2 big - Onions, finely chopped or grated
  • 3 big - Tomatoes, finely chopped or pureed
  • 3 tablespoons - Oil
  • 1 teaspoon - Ginger Garlic, paste or finely minced
  • 1 or 2 - Green chilly, optional
  • Salt, as per taste
  • Coriander leaves, for garnishing

  • 2-3 - Cloves, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon - Turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon - Red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon - Coriander Powder
  • 1 teaspoon - Cumin seeds


  1. In a pan take 1 tbsp of oil and add a pinch of turmeric powder and 2 pinches of salt at medium flame.
  2. Add the boiled eggs to the pan and saute for 3-5 mins until golden in color. Keep the eggs aside.
  3. For Curry: Add 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add bay leaf, cloves, cumin seeds at medium flame for 1 minute.
  4. Add Onion to the pan and fry till onions turn golden in color.
  5. Add ginger-garlic paste and saute for 1 minute. Now add tomatoes and saute well followed by adding red chilly powder, garam masala, coriander powder, turmeric, sugar & salt.
  6. Note: If you don't have Indian spices then don't worry -- Adding a bare minimum of Turmeric powder, Cumin seed, Red chilly powder will be sufficient. The taste will be a little compromising but not at all bad.
  7. Now cover the pan with a lid & let all the ingredients mix up well with onion tomatoes paste. After 5 mins uncover the pan and mix everything nicely. Cover the pan again for 2-3 minutes.
  8. By this time onion tomato paste will become somewhat dry. Now add water to it to make a gravy.
  9. Adjust the salt as per your taste. Now leave the gravy at medium flame for 5-7 minutes.
  10. Now add the eggs which we have fried in step 2. Garnish the curry with coriander leaves.
  11. Tadaaa... our yummy egg curry is ready to be served with Plain rice or Bread
