Simple hard-boiled egg curry


I very seldom eat a boiled egg. I am not sure why, I think it is the hard white part, but I just can’t seem to swallow the egg.

Put the boiled egg in curry or make a egg curry and I won’t touch it. The only time I seem to eat a boiled egg, is chopped up and drowned in mayo on toast, but that is like once a year.

While I was paging through Madhur Jaggery’s cook book, I came across a recipe for a simple hard-boiled egg curry and it looked so appetizing and I knew I had to give it a try, because this was the first time, I really really wanted to eat a boiled egg.

It is a quick and easy restaurant, the only thing that I did the night before was boil the egg and then I kept them unpeeled in the fridge till the morning when I needed them.


  • 4 x hard boiled eggs, peeled.
  • ¼ x tsp turmeric powder.
  • Salt and pepper to season.
  • ¼ x tsp chilli powder.



  • Carefully cut 4 slits in each egg, but careful not to cut right through the egg and set aside.
  • Heat some oil in a pan.
  • Add the turmeric and chilli powder and mix well.
  • Add the eggs to the pan and toss so that the eggs are nicely coated.
  • Remove from the pan and season well with salt and pepper.
  • I served mine with fresh white bread, topped with mayo and chopped sausages.
