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


By

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

Ingredients:
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


Method:
  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.
Now you can actually thank me for this Egg Curry Recipe.

Omelette stuffed with Salami

Stuffed Omelette Recipe

Eggs and me, inseparable! I just cannot get enough of eggs. It is must have in my breakfast. Whenever my mom asks me what I want to have for breakfast, invariably I will say "Omelette and Parantha". It just fills my heart with gladness! Oh la la, I just cannot stop talking about eggs.

Now, at times I do not plan what I want to cook. I will see what is in the fridge and then make something out of it. And today morning exactly this happened. My wife loves English breakfast, she is not the type of woman who loves stuffed paranthas like yours truly does. And I am a typical punjabi lad, I love my paranthas and butter. 

I saw some chicken salami and eggs in the fridge and thought of trying something different. And so I thought, why not stuff my Omelette with salami. Also, look at Shakshuka which is another fantastic breakfast.

Here is the the simple Omelette turned into a more delicious form.

Egg Frittata

Frittata Recipe or How to make Frittata

Hi Bhukkads,

How are you?

Weekend and time for that innovative and amazing breakfast, isn't it? Well that is exactly what I had today on this Lazy Sunday Morning. Two things I did, made this amazing breakfast and dusting of the house. Well, that is my way of helping my wife at home on weekends. Trust me, I do both things with passion as I like my food good and my house without a spec of dust.

Anyway, enough bragging and lets get to drooling. I have always though of baking eggs a fantastic way to have eggs. Egg Frittata was one thing that I wanted to make as I love eggs. Give me eggs anytime, in any form, I will be happy! It is also a more nutritious form as you can add as many veggies that you want. I had only peas and onions in the house and made do with them but you can add anything that you want. Carrots, capsicum, mushroom, anything you love! Well, if I had planned it well, I could have added salami and sausages too! Hell yeah! Though Frittata in Italian translates to "fried" but I baked them totally except the veggies that I sauteed beforehand.

Bread and Egg Pudding

Bread and Egg Pudding

When is comes to sweets and desserts, there are only two things I look forward to. The sweets with less sweet or any dessert made by my wife Bhavna. If you have seen the Tutti Frutti Cake she made which is on my blog, you will know how good she is with all things sweet.

On the same day she made that cake which she baked in afternoon, she made this even more awesome Bread and Egg Pudding for dinner. I have had puddings before, I have had good ones, but the flavor and taste was so awesome that I am still craving for it again. I must say, totally out of this world thing.

It doesn't look fancy, but let me tell you it looks delicious for sure.

Egg Roll is something that everyone loves with their ketchup and green chutney. But I don't like these sauces and chutneys. I feel they make the roll soggy. I like it crispy.

A roll should be crispy outside and till the last bite. That is what I feel.

Recipe

Ingredients:
  1. Maida or Refined Flour
  2. 1 egg per roll.
  3. Shredded Cabbage
  4. Sliced onions.
  5. Shredded Capsicum
  6. Any other vegetables if you want.
  7. Salt
  8. Chaat Masala
  9. Green Chutney if you like it or any other chutney/sauce.

Healthy Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs or Deviled Eggs Recipe

It is every morning fare at our place, especially in winters. Me and my twin sons eat boiled eggs sans the yolk. They way they don't like the yolk reminds me of my childhood and how even I used to hate the yolk in boiled eggs. Well, it is a good thing as by not eating yolk we are avoiding FAT. But then all white becomes bland.

Deviled Eggs is something that came to my mind and I have seen to so many variations of Deviled Eggs. I actually did not want to create the same thing but wanted to see if I can do something new and make it healthy as well.

So here it is, Deviled Eggs with Hummus 3 Ways. I had made Hummus a day prior and had some leftover. So, That is how I got the idea of this. See, how leftovers can be easily used in a fantastic way.

Deviled Eggs
Deviled Eggs with Hummus
Deviled Eggs can be traced back to ancient Rome. Traditionally, they are served cold. Hard boiled eggs are cut into half lengthwise. Yolk is removed and then crumbled and mixed with mayonnaise and mustard or other ingredients and then stuffed back.

But as the name I gave, my Deviled Eggs are healthy and a fusion of European and Lebanese fare. I stuffed them with Hummus in 3 different variations. Not only it makes the the eggs to colorful but also variety of flavor adds the interest and it is super healthy.

Lets see how the recipe goes.

Recipe
Ingredients:

  1. 4 hard boiled eggs.
  2. Hummus. Find the recipe here.
  3. Red Bell Pepper.
  4. Spinach

Now we are using Hummus which already has a lot of flavor so we will not be adding additional salt or any other spice. If you feel the Hummus that you have made has less salt, just sprinkle some salt on top or add more salt in Hummus as with the boiled eggs it might taste bland. Make it as per your taste.
