How To Make Fragrant Egg Curry


  • 10 fresh curry leaves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 cup peas (frozen are fine)
  • 1 Spanish onion, chopped
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1⁄3 cup red lentil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 2 tablespoons good-quality curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons light oil
  • 425g diced tomatoes
  • 8 hard-boiled eggs
  • cooked rice, to serve



Step 1

Place the chopped onion, grated ginger, and crushed garlic in a food processor. Process until they form a paste.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a heavy-based saucepan. Add the paste and cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes.

Step 3

Add the curry powder, ground turmeric, cinnamon stick, and fresh curry leaves to the saucepan. Cook for 1 minute, stirring to release the flavors.

Step 4

Pour in the diced tomatoes and 500ml (2 cups) of water. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Shell the hard-boiled eggs and cut them in half. Add the eggs, red lentils, and peas to the saucepan. If the mixture is too thick, you can add an extra 125ml (1/2 cup) of water. Cook over low heat for 15 minutes or until the lentils are soft.

Step 6

Stir in the chopped fresh coriander.

Step 7

Serve the curry with cooked rice.
