I am an EGG lover and so is my son and hubby. If it is left to my son and DH, they can eat eggs everyday and never complain. I make egg-fried rice for my son at least once a week if not more. With that kind of egg loving, I couldn’t pass up on this easy egg curry dish from Madhur Jaffrey’s cookbook, “At Home with Madhur Jaffrey”.

Indian curries/ gravies usually need a lot of prep work and cook time, but this curry the gravy/ sauce is made in the blender and then cooked, which cuts down on the prep & cook time significantly. A great dish for impromptu egg-loving guests.

  1. My brother practically lived off of this in college, nice reminder that I need to make it for him when he visits next :)US Masala

  2. I have never seen eggs prepared like this and they look fantastic. My family loves eggs too – I make eggs for dinner at least once a week. This will be a great new technique.

  3. My family can live off the eggs too.. I never tried adding besan to the curry sauce. I will try it next time
