Egg Kurma

Egg Kurma is a delicious curry or sidedish which makes a great combo with roti or rice. It can be also served for breakfast with dosa or appams. It's a simple and flavourful curry. The best part of a kurma is the grinding of  coconut and fennel seeds together. This gives a special taste to this delicious curry. I am not sure if this is the authentic egg kurma recipe, but this is how I make and we love this dish. I also make Vegetable Kurma similar to this. The main difference is that vegetables are cooked in coconut milk and cashews are also ground with coconut for Vegetable Kurma. You can also add cashews and coconut milk in this recipe too for extra richness and taste. Hope you all will try this out.



What you need?

3-4 Eggs
1 large Onion finely chopped
2 medium size Tomatoes chopped
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
5-6 Curry Leaves
3-4 Green chillies chopped
Spices: 1 tsp Chilli powder, 1/2 tsp Coriander powder, 1/2 tsp Garam masala , A pinch Turmeric powder
3/4 cup shredded Coconut
1/2 tsp Fennel seeds
1 tsp Oil
few Coriander leaves
Salt

How to prepare?

Hard boil the eggs. Remove the shell, put slits in them and keep aside. 

Grind coconut and  fennel seeds to a smooth paste.

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Saute curry leaves, onion, green chillies and ginger garlic paste until the onions turn light brown. Add the tomatoes, saute until they are cooked. Now add the spices and salt, combine well. Add a little water to this and let it boil. Now keep this on a low flame and add coconut paste. Mix well and if required add water depending on the consistency you need. Cook for a few minutes and finally add the eggs. Mix well , cover and cook for a minute or two. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with roti, naan, appam, dosa or with rice.



Serves 2-3

Notes:
* You can grind green chillies and a few cashews along with coconut.
