Quick & Easy Egg Curry Recipe with Step by Step Photos

Egg curry is a good change when you are bored of eating vegetables. It is easy to make and very satisfying. This is an egg curry recipe that has a thin, broth-like consistency. It’s slightly tangy from the tomatoes and hot from the green chilies and has a fresh aroma from the coriander leaves. The best part is, this egg curry gets ready in under 20 minutes because it is made in pressure cooker.

There are days when you are short on time or ingredients but still want to prepare a wholesome meal with your family. You can enjoy this soupy egg curry by ladling it over some hot steamed rice or dunk roti or plain paratha into it to soak up the flavorful broth. Some onion slices on the side and you have yourself an incredibly simple yet comforting meal.

I had previously shared the recipe of Maharashtrian-Style Saoji Egg Curry. You can check it out here. Now let’s see how to make this yummy egg curry recipe.
