Egg Curry (Egg Gravy using coconut milk)

Egg is my(our) favourite and it has been our life saver during our hectic days. I tried this egg curry long back and have been making it often. I like to try different and new egg recipes and this one fitted my craving perfectly. I've posted this chettinad egg gravy long back and have got good feedback for it.

Many of my friends even asked whether sharmis passions is a vegetarian space, I want to make it clear here.....the main reason for not posting nveg dishes is that I dont cook nveg though I eat ;) For the lame excuse I cant make this space starve so sure to post nveg dishes hereafter from ammas kitchen :)

Egg Curry Recipe



I like my gravy/curry to be thick and now u know the main reason for me to like this gravy :) You can make this curry even more thicker if you like.

My Notes:
  • I just reduced the cumin and pepper by 1/2 tsp as I wanted a less spicy curry. Adjust as per your liking.
  • You can add eggs a little before serving time too. Just heat the curry and add the eggs when serving as the egg easily absorbs the curry so try to serve a little after you switch off.

  1. Your idea of adding coconut milk is new. I must try it soon, as my family too prefers egg curry with plain rice!

  38. Hi, your recipes / posts are enlightening. They add life to an otherwise boring kitchen. However, you didnt mention when/where to add the garlic in the Egg Curry recipe. Looking forward to your response, and ofcourse to many more posts. Cheers.

    2. Hi Sharmi,

      I also had the confusion.Since the original recipe did not have garlic in it, i was confused whether i need to dry roast garlic too along with pepper and cumin seeds and make them a paste or dry roast just pepper and cumin seeds and when making a powder, do i add the garlic and make a paste from three of them. Since most of us follow step by step of yours, a little more clarification will be good.

      I have to mention that all your recipes are very good. Thanks for doing this.

    3. I will sure post the stepwise pictures soon but the steps are self explanatory....just roast and grind the ing listed under 'To dry roast and grind:' and add it in step4. Hope this helps!!
