Cooking Method

Step 1) Seasoning the Eggs:
Boil 6 eggs and discard the shell. Make few slits on the eggs or you can cut them into halves if you prefer.
Now to season heat oil and add chili powder,  turmeric powder, salt , little pepper and mix nicely.
Place the eggs and sauté it for a couple of minutes on a medium heat.

Step 2 ) 
Now to make gravy heat some oil and for flavoring add whole spices - cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom and cumin seeds.Next add finely chopped onions and some salt and saute until golden brown.

Step 3)
Add ginger garlic paste, green chilies and the masalas - Turmeric powder, Coriander powder, Garam masala, Chlili powder and mix well. If required add a little of water to prevent the masalas from burning.
Next add in finely chopped tomato and cook until everything turns into a paste.

Step 4) 
Once the tomatoes are nice and soft add enough water and let it cook for some time.
If you prefer a smooth gravy then you can grind the onion and tomatoes into a fine paste and then continue on with the recipe but I prefer to have some texture in my gravy and so I am going to continue at is it.

Step 5) Coconut Milk:
In a blender add grated coconut with some water and grind it to a fine paste. Adding Coconut adds thickens and richness to the gravy.

Step 6) Egg Curry:
Add the coconut milk and let it boil for some time. Once the entire gravy comes to a boil add in the seasoned eggs and let it cook for a couple of more minutes.

Step 7) Garnishing: 
Finally garnish it with some coriander leaves and turn off the heat.

Our delicious Egg Curry is ready to be served. This is an curry is an excellent companion for Chapathi, Roti , Rice and Dosa. This also goes very well with Appam, Appam and Muttai Curry is a staple food in Kerala.

Perfect Boiled eggs:
To make perfect boiled eggs add the eggs to a pan and add enough water to cover the eggs, once the water comes to a boil turn down the heat to low and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
If you check after 8 minutes the white will be fully set and the yolk will be tender,
If you check after 10 minutes both the white and yolk will be set perfectly.
If you cook further then a green ring will be formed on the exterior of the yolk and will start to smell bad and will turn hard.
So after 8-10 minutes immediately transfer the egg to a separate bowl filled with ice or cold water to stop further cooking of the eggs and remove the shell.


Egg Curry is an awesome side dish recipe enjoyed with Chapathi, Roti and rice.This is a recipe loved by both veg and non-vegetarians.This recipe is made by roasting the eggs first with masala and then added to the curry base to enhance the taste of eggs.
