Egg And Potato Curry

My-My-Nava-Mia! Can you believe it? Two of our favorite ingredients in a curry (Prawn Mango Curry, Thai Green Fish Curry & Bitter Gourd Sambar)? Egg and potato (Jacket Potato Chicken Mince & Dum Aloo)? Shall we hit hard at the recipe right now instead of wasting any more time? We shall of course. Thank you darlings for your kind consideration. Aromatic-tangy-thick egg and potato curry. Grab the recipe will you? While you are still at this precious space of mine, lemme me also give you options for other egg dishes - (Fried Egg Oyster Sauce, Tofu Scrambled Eggs, Egg Fish Roll, Egg Curry Masala, Egg Vindaloo, Egg Rasam & Bean Sprouts Omelette).

4 hard boiled eggs - remove the shells
3 boiled potatoes - cut into medium size cubes with the skin on
1 (about 100g) tomato - sliced thinly
6 shallots -sliced thinly
2 tbsp yogurt
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
A pinch of garam masala (or all spice powder)
1 tsp turmeric powder
*Mix these ingredients with some water for a thick paste

When oil is heated, saute shallots. 
Add in tomato and fry till it becomes mushy.
Put  in 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 potatoes and eggs.
Stir and continue to simmer for another 2 to 3 mins. 
Off the heat and combine in yogurt and coriander leaves.


  1. mak zy selalu masak ne time kecik2 dulu, makan plak dengan nasi panas2.. Perhh...teringat sampai sekarang...

  2. It will be nice if I could dip some bread into this delicious gravy!

  3. I often see fried boiled egg at indian restaurant or malay restaurant.

    Egg w potatoes is my first time. :)


  4. This is one of my comfort food curry. When I don't know what to make, eggs come in handy.

  5. It is amazing that this was put together in 1/2 an hour. Normally when I see long ingredient lists I think of prep work and simmer time. Great to know that the pop of flavor need not require all day in the kitchen. The egg potato combo really sounds tasty!

  6. This does look like a tasty meal. Usually when I see a big ingredient list I always think it would take a lot of time. Great to find out that you can get all the pop of these delicious flavors together in such a short time. Love the whole egg potato combo, curry does wonders to those elements. Well done!

  7. This is totally delicious, Nava! I love how simple ingredients like eggs and potatoes can make a very appetizing dish like this!

  8. One of my fave dishes featuring the humble egg. Thanx for the recipe. I can now make this at home:D

  9. Nava, this looks delicious and so flavorful. Wish I had seen this last week, when I had a ton of leftover hard-boiled eggs to use up!

  10. I adore potato curries, but eggs sound perfect with it. This would be a huge hit with me.

  11. This curry looks and sounds so flavoursome and delicious my friend! The colours are vibrant and who am I kidding - you had me at potato :D
