Egg Masala Curry

Print version of Egg Masala Curry
Egg Masala Curry with Chicken Pulao

I do not follow any standard (masala) recipe while preparing an egg curry. Each time I venture to prepare an egg curry, to serve as a side with rice or pulao, I tend to tweak an old favorite and experiment with spices. A friend visited us recently and I had prepared this egg masala which came out a winner. Despite all of the mesmerizing flavors of egg masala, the key factor that really put it over the edge was the ground paste made from ordinary ingredients like poppy seeds, coconut and curry leaves! Addictive taste, warming and satisfying! Serve with rotis, rice or pulao.

    Sailu – I made this recipe tonight, laptop perched on the counter, this page open for instruction. It was wonderful! I had never eaten egg masala before and wasn’t sure what to expect. But, I had some boiled eggs in the fridge, so I had to try it. It will be on my regular rotation of recipes now. I loved it. Thanks for sharing!

      Poppy seeds.

  • Madhu

    Sailu , we dont get poppy seeds any more in australia , can we try it without poppy seeds??

    • Sailu

      Yes, you can try without poppy seeds. Try to substitute with melon seeds (magaz) or few cashew nuts.

  • Sunitamdias

    hi saillu,
    made this for lunch today and was an instant hit with the kids loved it myself.

  • Gayathrishnkr306


    I didn’t use fresh coconut instead I used the packaged sliced coconut. But when I ground it into a paste, and used it in the recipe, the coconut paste did not mix well with the tomato puree.

    But having said all of the above – the taste was amazing. A great recipe! Thanks for sharing.
