South Indian egg curry recipe

South Indian egg curry made with boiled eggs, curry leaves & spices. This simple curry can be made easily even by beginners and pairs so well with rice, biryani, pulao, roti, butter naan, chapathi or plain paratha. Eggs are one of the most versatile & healthy foods that can be put to use in numerous ways. Making a egg curry is the simplest and most loved by many.

The recipe shared here uses basic ingredients and are mostly pantry staples. It is simple, quick to make, tastes hot, spicy and delicious. Each region has their own way of making egg curry.

Potatoes, drumsticks, coconut milk, fresh coconut and yogurt are some of the taste enhancers to make curries used based on the region. In most recipes, the basic ingredients like onions, tomatoes and spices remain the same.

The key ingredients used in a South Indian curry are curry leaves, garlic and some times coconut milk or coconut. Since I did not have coconut I used cashews here. If you have fresh coconut you can use it or add some coconut milk.

How To Make Perfect Hard Boiled Egg?

I know boiling eggs is not something, you all need to learn. I mean, it is so basic, who needs a recipe for that. But I often hear people struggling to get perfectly boiled and peeled eggs. So here is the thing, to get perfectly boiled eggs there are two things that matter. One is the cooking time and the second thing is the age of the egg.

The egg needs to be fresh. If the eggs are older, then I often find it becomes difficult to peel them. Put eggs in a pan, cover with water. Bring it to a boil and boil for 6-7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove and put it in cold water. Once the temperature comes down and is easy to handle, peel the eggs.

The Flavor

My preference for traditional egg salad calls for yellow mustard added to the mayo. But with this recipe I’m kicking it up and substituting the mustard with McCormick Gourmet Hot Madras Curry Powder. To round out the flavor I also added a touch of McCormick Gourmet California Onion Powder with a bit of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

The difference between Madras curry powder and regular curry powder is the heat. Madras is a bit hotter so if you are using regular McCormick curry powder instead, add more to taste in 1/4 teaspoon increments.
