Jeena's Egg Curry!

To some people the words egg and curry just do not go together, but to me
they are a marriage made in spice heaven!

I love egg and I love spices,
my hubby thought this was very delicious when I made it for him tonight!

I am sure you too will like it just as much as the taste was wonderful !

You will need ...

2 eggs(one egg per person)
Half tsp Ground Cumin
Half Garam Massala
2 tsp Turmeric
1 Red Chili(chopped small)
2 Clove Garlic(chopped small)
Chunk Ginger(approx inch)
2 Small Onions(chopped fine)
3 Small Potatoes(pre-cooked to just under done)
2 Small Sweet Potatoes(pre-cooked to just under done)
Hand Full Small Mushrooms
2 Small Sweet Potatoes
Creamed Tomatoes
Basmati Rice

Fresh Coriander
Olive Oil

To get started
First of all grind together the ginger garlic and chili. Fry the onions on high until browned then turn down the heat and add the ginger paste. Stir well then add turmeric, cumin and garam massala with some more olive oil, cook gently for a minute then add some creamed tomatoes and approx half cup of water along with your mushrooms and both potatoes.

Cover and simmer for 10 minutes while you cook your eggs.

Onto the eggs

To cook your eggs place them into a pan with cold water and a few splashes of vinegar.(vinegar stops the eggs from cracking and leaking) Bring to the boil then once boiling time them for 2 -3 minutes.

Then take them straight off, pour out the hot water and replace with cold - peel the shells off.

By this time your curry should be almost ready so first add the fresh coriander then place the eggs on top of your curry and shuffle the pan a little to wedge them into the curry.

Cook for a couple of minutes long gently stirring the sauce over your eggs.

Serve with basmati rice. Enjoy the wonderful taste !

Hey Asha, Thankyou so much! This is the first time I have curried eggs before and I will definatly be doing it again :)

Hi Sharmi, Thankyou so much too I am flattered by your comments :)
I love Indian Culture and food - I have got a cupboard with huge pots full off different spices and herbs and I just love to try various ways of cooking them. It makes me happy to get positive feed back from people who can cook REAL Indian food :)

I was at the shop and saw the white plates on special offer for 99 pence each so I bought two! My husband laughed at how enthusiastic I was about two plates :D

Hey Jeena,

I have a ques: What are creamed tomatoes?

p/s: Love your recipes!

Hi Cook-a-holic thanks for stopping by my blog :) Creamed tomato's are pureed tomato's you can get in a carton from the supermarket in the UK - but not like a thick concentrated tomato puree..... You could use tomato's that you have put into a blender or a tin of tomato's maybe. I hope this helps :) Do come back :)
