Goan egg curry




Hello folks! How is everyone? Β I hope you’ll had a safe and fabulous Diwali.

So today I have a pretty simple recipe to share with you’ll, it’s a simple Goan curry, that I just recently learnt from my mum in law who in turn learnt it from her mum. Oh ! My in laws are visiting us, and will be staying with us for a couple of months. So I’m definitely trying to learn and document as much Goan recipes as I can πŸ™‚

This is a super simple recipe, which can be prepared in a jiffy, and taste equally delicious too. Like most Goan curries, this too is Β coconut based, with a little variation in the spices used. My mum actually prepares this in a slightly different manner, delectabe nonetheless. I intend documenting that soon too.

Let’s make some delicious egg curry!!


6 hard boiled eggs, shelled and cut in halves

1 & 1/4 cup freshly grated coconut

2 garlic cloves

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds

1-2 Kashmiri chillies

1 and 1/2 tablespoon coriander seeds

1/2 cup chopped onions

1/4 cup coconut milk

1-2 tablespoons oil

salt to taste


1.In an electric grinder, add coconut, garlic, turmeric powder, cumin seeds, kashmiri chillies, coriander seeds, grind to a smooth paste, using little water at a time ( about 1 & 1/4 cup water). Strain this paste through a strainer and collect the extract in a container. (I used a cheesecloth since I didn’t have a strainer). Set this extract aside until further use.


image2.Heat oil in a pan , on medium heat, add chopped onions,saute until translucent. Add the prepared extract, and bring to a boil. Now add the boiled eggs, coconut milk, salt to taste and let it simmer for another 5-10 mins, until it thickens to desired consistency. Serve hot with steamed rice/ bread. ( Alternatively, instead of using boiled eggs, you can directly drop the eggs in the boiling curry, cover and let the eggs cook in the curry)



Thanks for visiting.

Have a lovely weekend.

    I fondly remember the Goan egg curries too. I’ve seen them made in various ways though, adding the hard-boiled eggs, or cracking the egg right in the curry sauce, I think my Mum used to make the latter. It looks gorgeous, nothing like a nice egg curry eh?

    Such a lot of flavoursome ingredients in this recipe, Freda. The combination must taste delicious – and the aroma would make anyone’s mouth water. I love the way you have presented it, too. I’ll make this one when my two daughters visit. They both love curry dishes and I think this one will impress them. πŸ™‚
