Egg Vindaloo

If you think only potatoes are far out the popularity in, if not all, in some households (Potato Gratin), how about eggs being the other favourite? In my house, goodness me, speak about eggs? We love eggs crazily. Eggs are never forgotten and they, mind you, will somehow head into dishes (Char Kway Teow). Either as one of the supporting ingredients or as the core ingredient (Egg Rasam & Egg Curry Masala).Today, obviously, I am featuring eggs again. The main highlight in fact for this Portuguese cuisine (Chicken Devil Curry, Devilled Prawns & Pada Salt Fish Pickle) Egg Vindaloo. Boiled eggs in a spicy,  thick and curry leaves scented gravy.  

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 aroma and then blend/process to a thick paste

Other Ingredients
100g (about 1 tbsp) yogurt
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. 
Add vindaloo paste and turmeric powder. 
Stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits. 
Add eggs, yogurt and curry leaves and season with salt. 
Stir all in 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 :)

  4. Hey Nava, I always see this in restaurants but have never tried making them. Love the eggs :)

  15. hi nava, this is great looks appetizing, never tried before.. thanks for sharing

  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 :)


  24. My favorite egg recipe of all the time,I know taste really great with NASI,,,I'm drooling now,we call it " semur telor " in Indonesia,great post Nava,make me,,want to go home to see my beloved mother :)

  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

  30. Absolutely stunning!!! The vindaloo looks so flavourful

  31. A delicious egg recipe.I love the appearance with rich gravy.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
