This is my grandmother's recipe and one of my favorite curries. A spicy and flavorful South Indian egg curry with coconut gravy. Yum!



What you'll need..
  • 4 Hard boiled eggs cut in half
  • 1 Small onion, cut in half and sliced 
  • 1/2 Cup fresh grated coconut or fresh coconut cut into small bits
  • 1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 Tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 Tbsp coriander powder

  • 2 Large tomatoes chopped
  • 3 Tbsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro leaves

How to..
  • Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a pan and add the sliced onions to it. Fry on high heat stirring constantly till the onions turn brown. Then set the onions aside.
  • In the same pan, heat another Tbsp oil and add the coconut to it. Stir constantly and fry till brown.
