Kerala spicy egg curry


 What came first Chicken or an egg ???

 Ok ok ...sTOP,stOP,STOP you all genius people out there ...Please stop yelling "Eggs" or "Chickens" at me..You know it makes me hungry !!Very hungry Both are my favorite !!

Well ,this question has baffled everyone since ages ,right from an innocent kid to the high IQ adult to the great scientist ,philosophers and even people whose brain are completely on hibernate mode "Me" !! Unconscious

Well, guess what?.. looks like we all are no different when it comes to this question Happy tears...I hope this question will never be solved technically and for sure ..because let my brain have some glory people !!Nodding Yes by a Very Happy

Duh ! I don't know which came first but I DO know what came first to my home in US after my marriage - "EGGS" !!

You Intel inside people guessed it..Isn't it - by the post name ? ...Oh my my EGGS-cellento !!


During those initial days of marriage ,the only non-vegetarian curry I could whip up fast was "Egg curry"...It was really easy to prepare unlike vegetable curries where you may have to cut a vegetable or two and don't even let me start on chickens....Just boil the eggs ,cut some onions,chillies,some spices and voila egg curry is ready in minutes...Best part of it - you can have it with roti/chappathi,rice,idiyappam,appam,even dosa and idlis....So...you might have kind of guessed it...I would make a big bowl of curry with loads of egg swimming in it as if crying - Help help help !! Goodbye tears...And I used it to torture my hubby for a few days straight with this eggs-cellent curry .. and when he would also say - "Help,hELP,HELP"...I would stop it finally...

As a matter of fact ,egg curry is still my favorite go to curry on lazy days....If a chicken would see me what I do with all those eggs..then no one can stop her from becoming a really bad,very bad,sad,mad "Angry bird" !!

So,here is a spicy Kerala egg curry recipe and this is how I make Kerala spicy egg curry ....

Kerala spicy egg curry


Egg - 2 nos.
Onion,big ,sliced- 1 no.
Green chillies - 2 nos.
Ginger garlic paste - 1 teaspoon
Tomato,medium,chopped - 1 no.
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Red Chilly powder - 2 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 tablespoon
Kerala garam masala - 1/4 teaspoon
Curry leaves - A few
Coconut milk - 3 tablespoons (optional)
Water - 1/2-3/4 cup
Salt as needed
Coconut oil - 3 tablespoon


  1. Heat oil in a pan.
  2. Saute the onions and green chillies until onions turn translucent on medium flame.
  3. Add ginger-garlic paste to it ,saute for a minute or two on low flame.
  4. Add tomatoes and spices, saute for a few minutes and cover it with a lid until tomato turns mushy.
  5. Remove the lid .Mix everything well .
  6. Add curry leaves,saute for a minute.
  7. Add water .Allow everything to boil on high flame.
  8. Once it starts boiling,lower the flame and allow it to simmer for a while until it thickens a bit.
  9. Add coconut milk to it.Stir well.
  10. Serve hot with chapathi,roti,rice,idiyappam,appam,naan etc etc....

  • If you are using some ordinary garam masala which doesn't have fennel seeds and ground pepper in it,then do add 1/4 teaspoon each for this curry. You can even omit the garam masala.
  • Since this curry is a spicy version,I added just tablespoons of coconut milk .To make it less spicy add more as per your taste.
