Egg And Potato Curry

This spiced up curry is made with the much loved all time two favorite ingredients - eggs and potatoes. I have been trying to figure out what's with eggs and potatoes for most of us. Though it draws a blank line, definitely any dish with both instantly makes everyone hungry.

In my house, there's always stock of both, replenished within a day or two when they run out. And its a good thing too because they come in handy, as said earlier, for any dish you want to make. Here's to the curry - aromatic, tangy and thick curry with eggs and potatoes. In fact this is my first curry recipe with potatoes. Previously its been snacks and stir fries like bonda, potatoes with dried chillies, lemongrass chilli potatoes, baked cheesy potatoes, potato rolls mint sauce, potato gratin and potato salted fish sambal

4 hard boiled eggs
3 boiled potatoes - cut into medium size cubes with the skin on
1 (about 100g) tomato - sliced thinly
6 shallots -sliced thinly
2 tbsp yoghurt
1 small bunch of coriander leaves - chopped
4 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

For the Curry Paste
1 tbsp plain chilli powder
1/2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp fennel powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric powder

When oil is heated, saute shallots. 
Add in tomato and fry till it becomes mushy.
Put in the ingredients for the curry paste. 
Stir and fry till aromatic and oil splits. 
Pour in 1/2 liter of water.
Season with salt.
Stir and let it simmer. 
Add in potatoes and eggs.
Stir and continue to simmer for another 2 to 3 mins. 
Off the heat and combine in yoghurt and coriander leaves.
