Many of you love to have Eggs . Eggs are powerhouse of nutrition packed with protein and many vitamins and minerals.

My Kids love to have eggs and their favorite dish is Egg curry. I try to make something different each time.

This time I made egg curry (Andhra Style) that is spicy and tangy. It was finger licking good.


Recipe for Egg Curry (Andhra Style)


4 Boiled eggs without shell

3 Onions (Medium Sized) finely chopped

3 Garlic (cloves finely chopped)

1Inch Ginger finely chopped

2 Dry Red Chillies

3/4/ Tbsp Coriander Powder/ Dhania Powder

4-5 Curry Leaves

Salt to taste

¼ Tsp Sugar (Optional)

2 Tomatoes finely Chopped

1 Tbsp Tamrind Paste (soak tamrind in ¼ cup of hot water and grind)


Heat 1 Tsp of oil in a wok. Add ½ Tsp Red chilli powder and salt and shallow fry the eggs for 2 mins.

Keep the shallow fried eggs in a plate.

In the same wok, add the finely chopped onions, ginger and garlic. Once the onion turn slightly brown add the finely chopped tomatoes. Divide the mixture into 2 parts and allow it to cool. Once the mixture is at room temperature, grind one part into fine paste.

In the same wok , add a tsp of oil, add mustard seeds, dry red chilli, curry leaves, turmeric/haldi, add the second portion of the roasted onion and ginger garlic. Add the onion paste and roast for 10 seconds. Add Cumin/ Jeera powder, Coriander/ Dhania powder, balance red chilli powder, tamrind paste and mix well. Add ½ cup water and let it simmer for 5 to 7 mins. Add sugar and salt to taste. Cut the eggs into half and add it to the simmering gravy for 3 to 4 Mins.


Serve it with Phulkas/rotis or rice.

  1. This looks delicious!! It’s so awesome your kids like eggs, when I was little I thought they were yucky… good thing I grew out of it because they *are* packed with protein and good stuff. Thanks for sharing:)

  2. I adore egg curry, it is a good job we have dicks and chickens to keep us in eggs as we make something similar to this fairly regularly, will keep this recipe in mind on the next time round and give it a try 😀
