South Indian Style Egg Curry

Being born and bred in northern part of india, I always enjoyed the rich lush taste of north indian cuisine. I gradually got introduced to taste of south when I started exploring south indian restaurants in Delhi and now in UK. There is something distinguishably different and nice about south indian cuisine, which keeps pulling me to try out something or other. Today I am sharing my stint with (अंडा करी) Egg Curry made in South Indian style.

I must confess that when I was kid, for me south indian meal only meant idli, dosa and sambhar. Thankfully now I have learnt a little more about this lovely cuisine and I do love to try out a south indian thali when I go to any authentic south indian restaurant. I do ensure I speak to chef there to gather the tips and tricks, which I subsequently try out and share it via blog to wider audience.

Indian cuisine is so diverse that it will be wrong to typecast one flavour to Indian cuisine. South indian cuisine has lot of influence of coconut, tamarind, curry leaves, sambhar powder. My recipe is inspired with similar south-indian spices. The spices used and ways of cooking will vary again in southern part of India. Karnataka has different flavour compared to Tamilnadu, or Kerala, or Andhra.

This recipe of mine does not claim to be best south indian egg curry, however am sure you will relish it for its distinct taste.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can use fresh grated coconut instead of coconut milk. Add this to the onion tomato mixture while grinding.
  2. After transferring eggs to gravy, give it 10 mins at least for gravy to seep into eggs for better taste. When in hurry, cut the eggs into halves and add to gravy.
