Quick and Simple Vegetarian Egg Curry

It’s 2017 – Let’s eat more vegetables! I have set a challenge for myself. I am committing to making a number of healthy homemade vegetarian dishes. Let’s see how that will work out.

This is such an easy and inexpensive weeknight recipe. You can whip it up for a your vegetarian friend or try it when taking a break from steak night.

The first time I ever had egg curry I was at a friend’s house who absolutely loves Indian food. Back then I wasn’t a big fan of spicy food, I was very much into strong bold flavors (SALT) lol for me that was about it.


I do however remember watching her make it and almost 5 years later I have recreated it. We had it with some naan bread and lots of natural yogurt on the side because I wasn’t so acclimated to the bright flavours. I couldn’t handle the heat. If you are new here then you should know that today, I totally love that spice in my food, I love how chilies can transform a dish.

So what do we need?


Dish serves 2.

  1. 3 eggs
  2. Paprika 1tspn
  3. Cayenne pepper (your preference)
  4. Chili flakes (sprinkle a few flakes)
  5. Tumeric (1 spoon)
  6. One onion (Red is my favorite)
  7. Ginger
  8. Garlic
  9. I cup of natural yogurt – If you’ve got monties get that Greek yogurt.
  10. 3 tablespoons of oilVegeterian egg currie

Let’s cook BEEH!

  • First throw your eggs into a pot of boiling water.
  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Throw in the onions, garlic & ginger.
  • Put down the snap chat and pick up the chat masala (PU DUM TSH)

Just Kidding you don’t need it.

  • You never want the raw taste of spices.
  • Add in the Yogurt.

(I think I was surprised with how it turned out, the consistency breaks. Worry not, just stir and let it simmer)

  • Add in the salt here.
  • Add in some water to the pot and let it simmer.
  • Keep stirring.


  • As the pot simmers I want you to cut the eggs in half.
  • Heat up a pan and throw them in yolk side down.
  • Once browned carefully place them into the curry and let the flavors soak in.
  • Add in the chili flakes and coriander.


Let it simmer for 2 minutes.
