Expert Tips

  • You can replace fresh cream with milk or yogurt for a low fat version.
  • Half down onion, tomato to make a thick gravy. If you want more gravy add more onion, tomatoes.
  • For the above mentioned quantity you can add 4-6 eggs.
  • Hard boiled eggs is best for this curry. You can even slice the eggs into half and add it. But make sure to serve it as soon as possible as there are chances for egg yolk.
  • If you add hard boiled whole eggs then you can make it well ahead of time if you are planning it for parties, get together.

Serving & Storage Suggestion

You can serve Egg Curry with phulka, rice, roti etc. Egg Curry keeps well in room temperature for a day and in fridge for 2 days. But I would not recommend storing eggs and consuming so it is always best to consume when fresh.
