Egg Curry With Pressure Cooked Masala

on June 11, 2015

Hello Foodies !! Weekdays are always hectic, and thinking what to cook is a bigger confusion.. Isn’t it ? Am sure all the working women like me will agree to it.

Last time, I tried something new, Well it was outta my laziness, As I didn’t wanna boil eggs for the egg curry, So I broke them directly into the gravy, And the result was so very awesome, I just couldn’t stop eating myself ๐Ÿ˜› Well sometimes experiments do work, Isn’t it ? A slight twist to this is, I pressure cooked the masala before adding it to the eggs. Dont worry, No much hassle ๐Ÿ˜€ But the taste is quite yummmm.. Trust me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Recipe Idea : Vah Chef


  • Eggs – 4
  • Onions – 2 (Finely chopped)
  • Tomatoes – 2 (chopped)
  • Ginger and garlic paste – 1 tbsp
  • Coriander powder – 2 tsp
  • Chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
  • Kasoori methi – 2 tsp (Crushed between yourย palms)
  • Coriander leave – for garnish
  • Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – 2 tbsp
  • Red chillis – 2 (Broken into pieces)
  • Curry leaves – about 7
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker, fry the chopped onions till translucent, Now add the tomatoes and fry for another 2 mins, until its soft.
  • Now add the ginger garlic paste, and fry for another minute. Mix in all the masalas, Coriander, cumin, chilli and turmeric powders and fry for a minute more.
  • Pour about 1 cup of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
  • Next, heat oil in another pan, Add the red chilli and the curry leaves and mix well, Now add this pressure cooked masala and fry for about a minute, Add some more water if you wish to adjust the consistency, Adjust the salt.
  • Next break open the eggs into the curry, cover the lid and cook on a low flame till the eggs are done. Do no mix at this stage as it will break the eggs
  • Once done, sprinkle the kasoori methi and the garam masala. Give it a mix, And garnish with coriander leaves.
  • Serve hot with steamed rice or roti.. Tastes delicious !!
