Spinach Egg Curry Recipe

Few days ago I got Spinach from local grocery store and was thinking I was make my usual “Palak Paneer” or Spinach Poori, but then one of those nights I felt why not try something different this time and checked if I have any eggs lying around. Yes, I did see a few eggs and I quickly got into action. That’s how my “Spinach Egg Curry” idea originated.

Every time I curate a new recipe, there is always a thought will this culminate into something scrumptious or will it be a learning lesson 😀 This time around it yielded this yummy curry, which I have not repeated a couple of times already.

The recipe is fairly simple and involves boiling spinach leaves followed by grinding spinach and sautéing in spices and lastly topping with boiled eggs. The key is the combination and quantity of spices (which I have mentioned in my recipe below).

I would like to think that this recipe is protein rich, as it has spinach and egg, both of these key ingredients are good for health.

In case you don’t have spinach (or don’t like spinach), you can try these two following eggs curries, both distinctly different in taste.
