Spicy Egg Korma – Spicy Egg Curry

This is again an recipe from my sister’s (Kavitha) kitchen. She shared this recipe with me. My mom used to make this and she makes the perfect egg korma. Recently when I was speaking to my sis and it reminded me of this curry and I couldn’t wait to make it.

Egg korma is always easy to make and it tastes so good. The tricky part in this recipe is adding the egg in the curry. Because you shouldn’t stir the curry once you’ve added the egg. It came out very well for me. Try this recipe and lemme know how it turns out for you?

  31. My mom makes a similar curry but yours came out very well and the combination of spices was perfect. Grinding coconut and fennel along with cashews was new ,but the curry turned out excellent and everybody at home loved it.

  32. How much of cloves, cinnamon and bay leaves do I add?

    • Hi Geetha, You can add cloves: 2, cinnamon : 1″, Bay leaves : 1. Sorry I forgot to add those measurements I’ll update the recipe. Thanks for asking.

  33. Hi, I tried this tonight, it turned out to be very good. Thank you & your website

  34. Just finished enjoying the egg curry…really good flavor! To get the eggs fully cooked, I put the lid on the pan and cooked eggs for about 3-4 minutes. Eggs were perfect! I had to add a bit more liquid to the curry as it wasn’t sauce-y enough with the one cup of water. This is my first attempt at egg curry…total success, thanks!

  35. Excellent recipe. Super…
