Reminiscing the Comforts Boiled Egg Curry Chronicles

Boiled egg curry is a dish that never fails to transport me back to my cherished childhood days, filled with the aroma of my mother's special cooking. On those memorable occasions, this dish would take center stage, conjured up by my mom's culinary prowess. For someone who adores eggs like I do, incorporating them into a curry feels like a move straight out of a MasterChef playbook.

For those who share my enthusiasm for this everyday staple food, here's a special recipe to try at home.


2 tbsp oil

3 bay leaves

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 medium onions, peeled and finely chopped

3 green chilies, thinly sliced

1 tsp salt

2 tomatoes, finely chopped

½ tsp turmeric

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1 tsp red chili powder

1 cup water

6 hard-boiled eggs

2 tbsp oil

Small bunch of coriander for garnish


Begin by placing a pan over medium heat and adding 2 tablespoons of oil. Toss in the bay leaves and stir for about a minute to release their fragrance.

Next, add the crushed garlic, finely chopped onions, sliced green chilies, and a pinch of salt. Sauté these ingredients until the onions turn a beautiful light brown, releasing their aromatic flavors into the air.

Incorporate the finely chopped tomatoes, followed by turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander, red chili powder, and a cup of water. Allow this delightful concoction to simmer for a further 10-15 minutes, letting the flavors meld and create a rich, aromatic base.

While the curry simmers to perfection, heat another pan and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Carefully place the hard-boiled eggs into the pan and fry them for approximately 1-2 minutes, or until they acquire a delectable, light brown hue.

Once the eggs are beautifully browned, gently nestle them into the curry, allowing them to absorb the flavors of the simmering sauce.

To finish off this culinary masterpiece, garnish your boiled egg curry with a generous sprinkle of freshly chopped coriander.

And there you have it, a perfect dish ready to be enjoyed at a friendly get-together with your loved ones. This delightful boiled egg curry, a tribute to my mother's cherished recipe, is sure to create lasting memories and satisfy the cravings of all egg enthusiasts.
