Egg Curry

We got this Aachi Egg Curry Powder free with a pack of 6 eggs. Since I had some coconut in the fridge, I thought that this curry would be the best way to use it up. Here is their recipe. I followed the recipe on the back of the packet. I served it with rice and keerai poriyal.

Ingredients (serves 4) :

  1. 4 hard boiled eggs
  2. 3 medium sized onions, finely sliced
  3. 1/2 cup fresh coconut
  4. 1 packet of Aachi Egg Curry Powder
  5. 2 tbsp oil
  6. 2 cups of water
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Coriander to garnish
How I made it :
  1. Grind the coconut with 2 cups of water.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp oil.
  3. Add the sliced onions.
  4. Fry the onions till they turn dark golden brown.
  5. Add the coconut and water paste.
  6. Add the egg curry powder.
  7. Fry till the curry thickens - about 10-12 minutes
  8. Add salt.
  9. Put in the halved boiled eggs.
  10. Turn off heat. Garnish with coriander leaves.
This was truly delicious. My mom sometimes tells me to buy these readymade powders as they have the perfect mix of the coriander, cumin, red chilli and other spice powders. I usually dismiss her suggestion but I think that henceforth, I may be reaching out for these mixes once in a while.
