Egg Curry: a delicious recipe from India


Egg curry is a simple and delicious dish from India. It is rich in flavour and full of traditional spices such as fenugreek, turmeric and cumin. There are two very popular versions of this curry, one made with coconut milk, which you will find below, and one with tomato sauce.

Like any curry, first and foremost, there is the gathering of all the ingredients. After adding all the spices and flavours, the time will do the rest and add the egg last, so they won’t overcook.
