    The egg curry looks very good. The egge is indeed a very versatile ingredient that allows you to experiment and also cook up a delight any time.

    ooh-after reading how the egg is prepared prior to making the curry, I am afraid I would be eating those tasty eggs before I even got to make the curry! Love the technique and your curry looks yummy.

    Wow – I love curry (you know that) and I LOVE eggs! Hard boiled, soft boiled, scrambled, poached…whatever! This dish is pure heaven! I love it!

    Thank you SO much for your kind words – I’m deeply touched. When I made that dish….I couldn’t help but think of you the entire time! You gave me the courage to try it….

    Buzzed this incredible dish…I’m going to have to make these (removing allergens – of course). I think hubby would go NUTS for this one!

    Frying the eggs remind me of my grandma. She would always fry cook eggs before she made something amazing. I normally use eggs in my thit kho (braised caramel pork and eggs) but this curry would be great whenever I don’t have the meat at hand. Thank you for this great recipe.

    Vandana, yes, indeed! We can really experiment with eggs a lot! And they come relatively inexpensive!

    Vimitha, oh, it would really taste well with appams. You are right!

    Savitharaj, I am so honoured when someone tells me that my cooking reminds them of their mom’s cooking. This is the ultimate praise and motivation for me, dear. I am so humbled by your statement.

    Tina, actually I did the same. I ate one egg before it went into the curry! 😉 Thanks, Tina!

    Mike, Banglaa Bazzar in NY?!!! Sounds very interesting!! We don’t have any Bengali Bazzaar in Hong Kong! So I am sure you will try out some of my Bengali dishes now!

    Thanks a ton, dear Ann, for being so kind to me! Thanks for the buzz too!

    Lilly, I am so happy that atleast I reminded you of your grandma! No one can beat Grandmas in their meticulous cooking, isn’t it?! But still, it feels good when you say this! Thank you.

    This is something new, the tip – merinade with tumeric powder – all these while I only deep-fry whole giving the crinkly brownish finish.

    Add some potatoes, I love dipping egg curries with bread and chapatis too!

    I am a curry lover. I notice here you have bay leaves instead of the curry leaves, any difference in flavour between these two?

    Thanks for sharing..


  57. purabi naha
    July 28, 2011 @ 2:23 pm

    Viviane, thanks for your wonderful words about my blog! I am so honoured!

    Wan Maznah, thanks for the Sunshine Award. This really means a lot!

    Mehjabeen, sure, dear! I’ll definitely check out the event.

    Katrina, thanks for your comment. Yes, potatoes do taste good in egg curry. I make two kinds of (Bengali) egg curries. The first one is here. The second one is a little different than this one and it uses potatoes. Curry leaves and bay leaves are totally different! The tastes of both are strong (but very different) and these two leaves can’t be substituted with each other.
    Curry leaves are usually used in South-Indian cooking, but this is the egg curry of West Bengal (Eastern India) and curry leaves are not traditionally used in Bengali cooking. The aromatic bay leaves are dry, but curry leaves are used fresh.


  58. katrina
    July 28, 2011 @ 3:03 pm

    Hi Purabi,
    My sis gave me a packet of dried bay leaves and told me it should taste good in curries. She bought it from a Bangladeshi sundry shop to show me the sample. I did not know what to do with it.

    Thanks for the info. Do you know that at times I get the Bangladeshi restaurant to cook for me some of their special chicken or fresh water fish curries?

    (My speciality- always get closely acquainted to cooks of my favourite local restaurants, one even came by my house to teach me how to prepare their Chinese special buttered prawns dish, he hehe). I am a lousy cook but love to eat..

    Anyway, No wonder they taste different from those curries served in Southern Indian restaurants.

    Hi Purabi! Haha, these are egg-celent! I love it especially when you cut those eggs in half and dip in the curry sauce…. YUM. I love the egg yolk part of boiled egg. I’ve never ate boiled eggs with curry flavor, but I do make fried egg with Japanese style (<- this is the key) keema curry.. 😉 I should cook this when I have lots of eggs. Thanks for the recipe!!!
