Creamy Egg Curry

Remember that ad "khana meri jaan ande hi ande", umm...well, egging people to have eggs?

Well, I for one, have never needed any encouragement to have eggs. I can have them in any form hard boiled, half boiled, scrambled, omlettes, poached, in curries, as finger food - well, pretty much in any form other than raw! Terradaze too shares my love for eggs and so I have in my repertoire plenty of ways to cook up eggs.

Tch tch...I can hear some of you say. Don't you know Aqua, eggs aren't entirely good for you?
Well, it seems that the jury is still out on this issue. And while too much of anything isn't good for you, the fact still remains that eggs are a great source of nutrition. I do limit our weekly egg intake to no more than 3 eggs and buy the fancy low cholesterol, omega 3+6 eggs.

It seems, however, that we didn't pass on the 'love eggs' gene to our lil' one. She dislikes eggs and no amount of enticing, cajoling, pleading, bribing or threatening will make her eat them EXCEPT for this egg curry!



Egg curry (in milk)

Ingredients:

Eggs - 4 , hard boiled and shelled
Onion - 1 small, grated
Ginger and garlic paste - 1 tsp each
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - 1 1/2 tsp, finely chopped
Low Fat Milk - 250 ml
Cornflour - 1 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon - 1"inch stick
Cloves - 5 nos
Green chilli* - 1
Red chilli flakes* - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste

Method:

Slice the eggs into two.
Blend the cornflour in some water and set aside.

Heat oil, add the cinnamon and cloves followed by the ginger garlic pastes. Fry until fragrant. Next, add the green chilli and the onion and saute till pink. Add the turmeric powder, red chilli flakes, salt and sugar and stir for half a minute.

Pour the milk and bring to a boil, simmer for a further 5 mins. Add the cornflour paste and let the gravy thicken. Finally, add the eggs and the coriander and simmer for another 2 minutes. Add some water if you want your curry to be thinner.

Serve hot with steamed rice.


Notes:
1. If making for kids, don't add the chilli and the red chilli flakes. Normally, I set some curry aside for my daughter and then add the chilli to the rest and bring it to a boil.
2. You can vary this curry a lot - add coconut milk or even butter milk in place of normal milk.
3. Instead of eggs, try making this with baby potatoes or baby corn or even cauliflower - tastes great!

  3. Eggs are excellent source of protein and Yolks indeed bad for people who have high Cholesterol. As you said, anything in excess is bad for us. We love egg dishes at home, so I usually make something at least once a week with eggs.

    Now coming to your fabulous Egg curry, I will be trying this very soon. I am in love with the color, sounds like a great recipe. Thanks Aqua! :)

  14. This is the first time i have seen egg curry in milk! never even thought about it. but really we cook all other things in milk... looks rich. We have eggs in moderation.. I do not think it is wise to cut it off your diet entirely.

    i do the same thing for DD2.. remove hers & add chili in ours:-DD
