Egg Curry or Anda Curry is a popular Indian curry where boiled and fried eggs are tossed in a rich onion-tomato gravy. This exquisite flavorful sauce is spicy and simple to make and is perfect with both rice and roti (Indian flatbreads).
Eggs are quite easy to make and is a staple in our everyday diet. We consume eggs in various forms - like curry, roast, or scrambled. Our egg basket is always full in the refrigerator because it is so versatile.
Mum makes this simple egg curry for dinner at least twice every week. She adds a twist to the humble curry by alternating different veggies added in the curry. Sometimes, it could be potatoes or peas, other times, the curry is cooked in coconut milk.
Here I am going to share the very basic egg curry recipe which you can build on by adding your favorite ingredients. It is spicy because our spice tolerance is high. The gravy is made of onions and tomatoes along with spices. You may, however, make an even simpler tomato-only gravy.
How to Make Simple Egg Curry
Cooking an Egg curry is really simple. All you have to do is boil a few eggs, make an onion-tomato gravy and toss the eggs in it. The flavor lies in the gravy and it needs some time to cook.
To make a simple egg curry for rice or roti, boil a few eggs. Peel and keep aside.
For the curry, heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters, add green chilies and curry leaves.
Add sliced onion and saute well. Add finely chopped ginger and garlic. Saute until golden.
Add diced tomatoes and saute until well-mashed. Add Kashmiri chili powder, Egg Masala (or any vegetable masala powder also will do), and Coriander powder. Mix and cook until oil separates.
*Note: You may add boiled potatoes, cauliflower, or peas at this stage if you choose to.
Add garam masala and salt. Add hot water and mix again. Let it come to a boil. Simmer for 5-7 minutes on medium heat.
Heat a pan, add a tablespoon of oil, and a pinch of red chili powder. Toss the boiled eggs in it to fry slightly.
Add these fried eggs to the curry and mix gently. Cook for a couple of minutes more. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rice, roti, or appam.
