Egg Vindaloo

Eggs - always forever stocked up and always forever the favourite. Eggs by far can go into anything, I mean into curries (Eggs Green Curry), stir fries or even the simplest form as scrambled eggs or into instant noodles. Eggs are also my saviour when I am truly busy but still need to cook. For this dish, eggs are featured in a vibrant well known Portuguese dish for its spiciness and tad bit of tanginess.  

5 eggs - hard boiled, remove shells and prick evenly with a fork all over
1 green chilli - chopped
1 (about 100g) onion - chopped
1/2 inch ginger  - chopped
5 garlic - chopped

For vindaloo paste
4 dried red chillies
1 tsp black pepper seeds
1 tsp fenugreek/halba seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp black mustard seeds
** dry fry these ingredients over low heat to release the aroma and blend/process to a thick paste

Other Ingredients
100g (about 1 tbsp) yoghurt
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
3 sprigs curry leaves
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

In the heated oil, sauté chilli, onion, ginger and garlic to soften.
Add vindaloo paste and turmeric powder. 
Stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits. 
Add eggs, yoghurt and curry leaves and season with salt. 
Stir all together and dish out.

  1. MMM~~ THis looks super yummy! I like this one. :)


  2. I have never worked with whole seeds and the whole method of "dry fry" does interest me. I am sure that it imparts quite a bit more flavor than the powdered stuff. How I would like to sample this spicy egg dish! Delicious post.

  3. Wow, this dish is a beauty!!! I've never heard of egg vindaloo (only meat versions), but it looks wonderful!

    PS...saw your wax museum photos on facebook...I'd be cuddling up with George Clooney, too :)

  16. LOL...too bad you couldn't have smuggled George home in your suitcase :)

  17. Ohh looks real good. Eggs are my fav.
    I've seen and eaten something like this in nasi kandar shop... not sure they are the same or not.

    Btw why do you need to prick the eggs? Is it so that the gravy can seep in? And what do you use for the pricking?

  18. I actually thought this was an Indian dish :). Egg is always good with any style.

  19. Hi Nava, wow.... makes me drooling and my keyboard flooded with saliva. Your egg vindaloo so tempting, guess extra rice for me no problem.LOL Have a nice day.

  20. Nava, I ADORE hard boiled eggs. This sounds SO amazing! What a delicious dish! Buzzed this one - it's incredible!

  21. Thank you again everyone for all the amazing comments.
    Amy - I have replied your query on your blog. Btw, use a fork to prick and yes, for the gravy to sip into the eggs.

  22. Yummmm....Egg and Vindaloo..Great combination!!

  23. the vindaloo looks so special and great! it kinda reminds me of curry puff which i normally eat :)

  25. very interesting christmas dish you have. most would say ham and cheese for filipinos but i think it will always be skewed pig over a charcoal called lechon..

  26. I just salivated looking at those photos -- gorgeous dish! Love vindaloo :D

  27. Wow, that sounds fantastic. I love vindaloo curried items, but on an egg, it sounds even more tasty - I imagine the creamy yolk would be a great contrast,

  28. I never thought vindaloo was Portuguese all of this years I thought that was Indian, learned something new today

  29. I never knew vindaloo is from portuguese cuisine..Yumm
