Delhi-Style Egg Curry

Time: 50 mins


  • 2 -3 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 onion, sliced finely into half-rings (approximately 5 oz.)
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 5 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed through a garlic crusher
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon bright red Hungarian paprika
  • 4 tablespoons natural yoghurt
  • 2 -3 medium tomatoes, peeled and very finely chopped (about 10 oz in all)
  • 12 fluid ounces chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • 4 fluid ounces whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 -3 fresh hot green chili pepper, left whole (or finely chopped for a hotter dish)
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 hard-boiled eggs, peeled and halved lengthways


  • 1 Place the oil in a medium to large non-stick lidded pan and heat over a medium-high flame.
  • 2 Add the sliced onions when the oil is hot, and stir and saute about 6 minutes until they become reddish brown in color.
  • 3 Toss in the ginger and garlic and continue to stir and fry for a minute.
  • 4 Next add the ground spices, namely the coriander, cumin, turmeric, chile powder and paprika, and mix and stir for around 10 seconds.
  • 5 Start adding the yoghurt, a tablespoon at a time, stirring well after each addition until it is absorbed.
  • 6 Place all the finely chopped tomatoes in the pan and cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, until they become pulpy- you can mash them with the back of a wooden spoon, or a potato masher, to aid the process.
  • 7 When the tomatoes are pulped to your liking, add the chicken stock and salt to taste, bring to the boil, cover the pan, then gently simmer the sauce for 15-20 minutes over a low heat, during which time it will thicken.
  • 8 The sauce can be prepared to this stage ahead of time.
  • 9 When ready to serve, stir the whipping cream, garam masala, chilies and cilantro into the heated sauce, then season with more salt if necessary.
  • 10 Lay the hard-boiled eggs in a single layer, cut side up, in the sauce, and spoon some sauce over them.
  • 11 Serve as recommended above with parathas or rice.
