Kodi Guddu Beerakaaya Kura – Egg – Ridgegourd Curry

Boiled eggs are cooked in combination with vegetables like ridgegourd, drumsticks, potatoes, tomatoes and minced meat (kheema) and fresh prawns in our parts. One delectable combination is the pairing of ridge gourd with boiled eggs, a delicious Andhra style curry. Today’s milk based gravy dish, with very few ingredients, transforms a simple egg curry into a delicious meal along with hot rotis or rice.

The subtle sweet flavor of the ridge gourd simmered in milk gives sweetish overtones to the dish but the use of dry red chillis as well fresh green chillis lends the egg curry a bit of spice too. So all those who think Andhra cuisine is spicy, this recipe should prove them wrong.:)

  2. I tried even this recipe- turned out great.
    So far i never cooked beerakaya for guests but
    from now on I will, u know what i mean.

    thanks for the recipe.

  3. Thanks for your contribution to carry our culture forward through the cuisine.

    I tried another way to get eggs absorb more spices from the gravy, slicing them into small circles using an egg-slicer, dipping them in egg, salt and pepper mix and toasting them on a pan, before adding them in. Worked very well.

    I also like the dry shrimp/prawn variety that someone else suggested here.

  4. Thank youuuuuuuuuuu Sailu !! I wish you could see my happiness. This turned out very tasty. Its raining outside and I made this since all I have at home is ridge gourd, and omg you won’t believe how yummy it is with hot white rice. Thanks a ton Sailu !!
