Egg curry with onion and tomatoes is a 15 minutes recipe. Great side dish for rice and Indian flat breads.
For the third and final day of side dishes, it is an easy egg curry with tomatoes and onion. I do not follow a specific recipe for egg curry and throw in whatever is in my spice cabinet depending on my mood. The recipe below is the basic recipe I follow. Sometimes a pinch of garam masala, sometimes some sesame seeds powder also goes into the curry and sometimes I make a thick gravy by adding some poppy seeds.
Today it is a simple onion tomato saute. I meant to make more curry base and use 4 eggs but absentmindedly boiled only 3 eggs. I realized it only after heating oil and adding some onion to it. Since it is only 3 eggs, I held back on some onions and ended up with a bit too much of oil. For a no tomato version, check this onion egg curry.
Hurricane Joaquin gave us our share of rain for the past 2-3 days and sun finally came out yesterday. I was hoping sun would come out by Saturday afternoon and was planning to get some cooking done for the blog. Since there was no sign of sun peeking out of the clouds, I made this curry Saturday evening. Wish I waited till Sunday for more natural light. This curry is spicy hot and perfect for a cold evening dinner.
Below is the B&W image of the egg curry. The original image is in color & edited it for my picture of the day. I did some post processing to give it a vintage & b&W effect in Picasa.
