Egg & Potato Curry

Servings : Serves 2-3

A thick, spicy gravy with tender cubes of potato and hard-boiled eggs…super easy to make and fantastic with bread, rotis or boiled rice.


  • 3 boiled eggs, peeled
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • few methi leaves (fenugreek leaves)
  • 3 potatoes, cubed and boiled then drained
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 a lemon's juice
  • 2-3 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped


Heat the oil, add cumin seeds and allow them to splutter, then add the methi leaves and fry for a few seconds. Next add the onions and fry until golden brown.

Add the ginger and garlic pastes, fry for a few seconds, then add the chopped tomatoes and green chili, then cook on low heat until tomatoes are mushy and all moisture has evaporated.

Next add the coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric, salt and black pepper. Mix well and cook down for a few seconds. Add the the cubed boiled potatoes and boiled eggs. Add about a half cup of warm water and simmer gently on very low heat whilst covered for about 5 minutes. If you want more gravy, feel free to add more warm water to the consistency you want.

Then sprinkle the chopped coriander and garam masala, plus the lemon juice. Stir well, and serve warm with accompaniment of your choice.

Enjoy! 🙂
