Our Egg Curry Recipe is a culinary masterpiece that embodies both simplicity and depth of flavour. A dish that needs no introduction in Indian households, this rich curry brings together the goodness of eggs and flavour-packed spices along with the aromatic blend of MAGGI Masala-ae-Magic. From the fussy little ones to the grownups, everyone is bound to come back for one more serving of this hearty dish. The History of Egg Curry Recipe in India The tale of Egg Curry Masala begins in the heart of Awadh, a place known for its rich food traditions. Its story is as interesting as the dish itself. As shared by 20th-century food writer Alan Eaton Davidson, Egg Curry's journey started with a chef's culinary experiment. This skilled cook took a hard-boiled egg, covered it with minced mutton, and fried it until it turned a beautiful golden brown. Although modern versions of the Egg Curry Recipe have moved away from using meat, the core essence of Egg Curry remains unchanged. It's all about the chunky, textured gravy, which gives the dish its unique character, making it a timeless favourite that has stood the test of time.
