Do you love eggs? We are big fan of eggs, be it boiled or fried. Eggs are an excellent source of choline and protein. These are also a good source of Vitamin D, Folate & Calcium. Eggs are on my weekly menu and I make it at least twice in a week. So let’s get to know about the recipe.
Tomato Egg Masala is something which goes very well with Indian flat breads or any rotis. This tasty and yummy dish is my all-time favourite. And, now even my hubby has joined me to team up. I love the texture and the gorgeous colour of the yolks surrounded by egg whites & tangy tomato masala.
- Boiled Egg – 2
- Onio – 2, large (finely diced)
- Tomatoes – 4, finely chopped
- Oil – 2 tbsp
- Ginger Garlic Paste – 1 tbsp
- Curry Leaves – Few
- Mustard Seeds – 1/2 tsp
- Chilli Powder – 1.5 tbsp (adjust)
- Cumin Powder – 1/2 tsp
- Salt to Taste
How to Prepare:
- Heat oil in a kadai, splutter the mustard seeds & curry leaves.
- Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 2 – 3 minutes until the raw smell disappears. Now, add the finely diced onions and sauté until transparent. Ensure that you don’t brown the onions.
- Then, add chilli powder and cumin powder. Saute for a minute.
- Add the finely chopped tomatoes and mix to combine. Add salt and cook covered until fat separates from the sides. Check for the seasoning and if the tomatoes are cooked. When done garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any Indian bread/rotis.

Many consider egg as a vegetarian dish. Egg is a very healthy and elders say that this can be included in our everyday meal. I try to include this either way, may be plain omelette or even as boiled egg sprinkling some salt and pepper on it. I’m sure egg is liked by most of us and so this is my version of egg curry a little spicy.
3 Boiled Eggs, 3 tbsp Oil, 1 Onion, 1 tsp Chilli Powder, 2 tsp Coriander Powder, 3/4 tsp Garam Masala, 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder, 1 Cup Tomato Puree, Coriander Leaves
2 Green Chillies, 8 Pods Garlic, 1 tbsp Chopped Ginger, 1 Onion, 1/2 Cup Chopped Coconut, 2 tbsp Coriander Leaves
How to Prepare:
Grind the masala ingredients to a smooth paste and set aside.
Heat oil in a kadai, fry the chopped onions till golden brown. Add all the spice powders except garam masala and fry for a minute or two. Add the ground masala paste, tomato puree and fry for till the oil separates. Now, add salt, water and bring it to boil till the gravy is thickened or reaches the required consistency.
