Maharashtrian Anda Curry Recipe | Egg Curry Recipe, a unique curry paste

This egg curry is inspired by Saoji/ Savji community that hails from the Nagpur region of Maharashtra, India. This popular indian cuisine is known for it’s spicy & fiery dishes, particularly non vegetarian.

The ingredients used for this recipe are quite simple however, the combination of spices makes it very spicy.

The rich flavours of the freshly ground powder & curry paste gets infused into eggs and makes it absolutely delectable.

In this traditional Maharashtrian, Indian cuisine, a special variety of chilies are used, which lends the distinctive red color and spicy flavour to this curry.

Therefore I have toned down the spice levels so that we all can enjoy this.

However, you can increase the spice level by adding more of it to the dish.

 

Easy and simple egg curry recipe

At our place we usually make egg curry with basic onion-tomato curry paste. Then after boiling the eggs, we shallow fry it in very less oil before adding it to curry.

This small step of shallow frying  lends a very interesting and crispy texture to eggs.

So if you are looking for an amazingly different, flavorful yet simple egg curry recipe, this one is sure gonna impress you.

I have learnt this curry from a Maharashtrian house help as she always used to mention how they prepare fresh curry powder and paste every single time for this anda curry.

Initially I was a bit sceptical, but after she narrated the recipe, I was pretty sure going ahead with that, of course but with some changes by toning down the spice levels.

Moreover eggs have a quality to absorb the flavors from whatever they are added to, I was pretty sure it will do justice to delicious, rich gravy.

To my utter surprise the gravy is very easy to make, full of flavors, and turns out just perfect.
