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.

  22. Gayathrishnkr306 says:

    Hi,

    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.
