Punjabi Egg Curry Recipe

Egg Curry Recipe or How to make Egg Curry

Growing up in a punjabi family, one of the staple curries that I would eat is Egg Curry. And I used to love the way my mom will make it. I still do. But then there are things you take for granted and it is the same with me. Being busy in making those fancy dishes like Chicken Korma, ToumChicken, Hummus, Piri Piri Chicken and many more, I never tried my hand on this really delicious Egg Curry.
I remember enjoying the hot serving of Egg Curry with hot chapatis directly off the tawa in chilly Delhi winters. Trust me, when you are hungry, this simple thing is heaven. Imagine me and my siblings fighting for that extra egg in our curry. Being the youngest I will get it too.!
So, I decided to get into the kitchen and try my hand on it. It actually is a lot like other North Indian curries and very simple. You can also do some variations in it. I just make the basic one but I will tell you about it.

Here is the humble Egg Curry.

Let me tell you how to make Egg Curry.

Punjabi Egg Curry Recipe


Egg Curry is made using simple spices used in normal curries in north India. It is really liked mostly in northern part of India.

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: Serves 2

6 eggs
2 table spoons oil
Salt to taste
Half teaspoon Turmeric powder
Garam Masala
Turmeric Powder
Red chilli powder
Dhaniya or Coriander powder
2 medium size onions
2 green chillies
2 medium size tomatoes
1 table spoon Ginger Garlic paste

  1. Hard boil the eggs and peel them off.
  2. Finely chop the onions, chillies and tomatoes.
  3. Heat oil in a pan or kadhai.
  4. Add the onions and green chillies and cook for 2-3 minutes till oil separates.
  5. Now add Ginger-Garlic paste and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
  6. Now add all the spices except garam masala and cook till oil separates. TIP: keep adding little water while it gets cooked to ensure it doesn’t stick to the pan.
  7. Now add finely chopped tomatoes and cook them for another 3-4 minutes.
  8. Now the variation part. You can either put whole hard boiled eggs or cut them into halves. Another things that you can do is so deep fry whole eggs. I love this one.
  9. Now put the eggs in the gravy and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  10. Add little water as per your preference of thickness of gravy and cook till oil starts separating.
  11. Another trick that I love. Take out yolk from 2 boiled eggs and mix it in the gravy. This will make the gravy thicker if you like it that way.
  12.  Just when it is done, add garam masala and garnish with chopped coriander.
