Delicious and quick egg curry recipe, ready in just 20 minutes.

Egg Curry | Dhaba-Style Egg Gravy

This dhaba-style egg curry goes well with steamed rice, hot phulkas or parathas. It’s great for those days when you don’t have any veggies in your refrigerator or want to cook a quick dinner on a busy weekday. I just love making this dish during the fall-winter season. This spicy and rich egg curry is really comforting as the weather starts to get colder. So to make this dish you’ll need, some boiled eggs, yoghurt, onion, ginger garlic paste and a blend of spices. Thick in texture, this gravy is really flavourful. It’s slightly high on the spice quotient but you can make it less spicy if you want. So if you are bored with the usual egg curry then do give this recipe a try. It will surely please your taste buds.
