It is a coconut milk based egg curry with a thick creamy gravy. Each time I try to prepare different types of egg curry to serve as a side with rice or pulao. Despite all the awesome flavors of egg curry masala, the key factor was the fresly ground green masala paste made from ordinary ingredients like cilantro, mint leaves, green chilies, ginger, garlic and lemon juice. Really a refreshing, warming and addictive taste, that ask for more and more curry. Egg curry is one of my favorite dish, in fact my kids loves eggs.

Tips- To increase the spice level, add more green chilies to make green chutney. Eggs should be hard boiled, If you want you can boil eggs and potatoes together. Make sure to get the eggs to room temperature before boiling them, and add salt to the water to prevent eggs from cracking. Add some butter or ghee just before serving enhance the taste of the curry. Fresh coconut milk taste really good, but if you want you can use coconut milk powder too.
