Egg with Coconut Milk

This is a recipe I tried out from Laavanya's Cooker Corner with very slight modifications. And here is how it turned out. I had long ago put up a recipe where I have used coconut masala - but this uses coconut milk and the picture looked so good I had to try it. And it did turn out well.

Hard boiled eggs - 2 nos, cut in half
Tomato purée - 4 -5 tbsps
Onion - 1 medium - slice
Coconut milk - 20 ml ( if ready coconut milk is not available, grind 1/4 coconut with little water and extract the milk from the paste by straining it through a sieve)
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp
Chili powder - 1/2 tsp or acc to taste
Pepper powder - acc to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Curry leaves - few
Coriander leaves - for garnish

Make a paste of the powders - turmeric, coriander, chili, pepper, garam masala in little water and keep.
Take a wok, add the oil.
Add mustard, once it splutters add curry leaves.
Add the sliced onion and saute.
Add tomato puree, and the mixed paste of the powders.
Add a little water and allow to cook awhile.
Add the egg.
And the coconut milk - simmer for 2-3 minutes- do not cook on high flame.
Add salt.
Remove from fire.
Garnish and serve.


  1. Yep...another great recipe it seems. AND...another one I am going to have to try. Problem is...there is not enough days in the week! By the way...thanks for coming by and commenting on my means a lot to me as I can see you are an expert in cooking these foods.....and my MIL is far away so cannot even taste that I cook like this now. She might be happy knowing I am cooking 'home cooked' foods as she did for her one and only son. Grin. I am really more a mixed bag when it comes to cooking...having a German heritage and my husband coming from East Africa.

  2. I am not a great cook. But posting the recipes on this blog has kindled an interest in cooking. The family suspects that I try out recipes so that I can post them here!

  3. Oh are too funny....but as cooking is pleasing and we wish to please those we love...why not?! My boys have learned to sit and wait patiently while I take pictures BEFORE serving them! Ha!

  4. Thank you Radha for trying out this recipe and for letting me know :) Nice blog and I love the other dry curry as well.


Some time to spare? Do leave a comment. Thanks.
