Egg Curry is always the fallback option when you feel like having something non-veggie and do not want to cook meat. Also egg is that one staple which kind of falls into the veggie and non-veggie category. When I think of egg curry, the first thing that comes to my mind are those breakfasts from "Amritha Restaurant" during my Technopark days (my office location back in Kerala, India), with soft 'n yummy Appams and spicy Egg Curry. As I am writing this, I can run a boat in my mouth! Egg curry is made in different form/fashion in different regions of India and the one I have here is a South Indian style.  Print / Save this Recipe Serves 6-8 people Coconut Oil - 3 tbsp Onion - 2 (thinly sliced - around 1.5 lbs) Ginger Garlic Paste - 2 tbsp Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp Chilly Powder - 2 tbsp Coriander Powder - 2 tbsp Garam Masala - 1 tsp Boiled Eggs - 8 Salt - to taste Water - 2 cups Curry Leaves - 2 twigs Heat oil in a pan and add the thinly sliced onions and saute it until they start to turn brown. Do not let them burn, the onions should just start to caramelize. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell is gone. Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, chilly powder and garam masala and saute for 10-12 minutes in medium flame until the whole mixture has a deep brown color. Add water, curry leaves and salt to the masala and stir to mix well. If you want a dry curry, you can reduce the amount of water or not even add it. When the water starts to boil, turn off the stove. Place the boiled eggs cut into half on top of the curry carefully and pour some gravy over it to make sure they get coated with the masala. You would not want to stir the gravy with the eggs, as it would break the eggs. It would be ideal to close the pan and keep it aside for 5 minutes before serving. This curry will be perfect with Appam, Idiyappam, Chappathy, Paalaada or any other breakfast item. This egg curry also brings to my mind, the jingle most Indians would remember! (It is a jingle that used to play on TV as an Ad for Eggs. In a nutshell, it means you should eat eggs daily in one form or the other- omlet, fried or boiled - be it Sunday or Monday) Meri jaan, meri jaan, murgi ke anday! Omlet khilaoon, fried khilaoon, boiled khilaoon!Khilaoon murgi ke, murgi ke, ande hi ande!  Sunday ho ya Monday, roj khaayein ande
