Indian Egg Curry Recipe

There’s nothing as delicious and comforting as the simple flavors of an Indian Egg Curry recipe. 

it’s made using extremely basic ingredients and yet gives you that rich curry flavor that leaves you wanting for more.

This North Indian Egg Curry, is one of our goto weeknight dinner menus at home and a lot of our friends who don’t cook regularly love to make this recipe as it’s so easy.

What is Indian Egg Curry?

A Few days back I got a ‘direct message’ on my Instagram asking if this is Indian Shakshuka version….hmmm…not really but in many ways, they might be distant cousins 😉

Unlike Shakshuka (which is an onion-tomato-peppery sauce-based, using raw eggs), the Simple Indian Egg Curry is made using a sauteed Indian Masala (details below) and then hard-boiled eggs are added towards the end of the process.

Then the whole mixture is covered and simmered for a few minutes (to incorporate all juices, spices, and flavors).

So, I can say they are not the same but might come under some kind of similar category.

Also, this recipe is different from it’s Southern version as it doesn’t use ‘Curry Leaves’ or ‘Spices or Peppers’.
