Kerala Style Egg And Potato Curry

Print Pin
Servings: 4
Author: Maria Jose

Ingredients

  • 5 Hard boiled eggs
  • 1 small - medium Potato (cooked & cut into cubes)
  • 1 big Onion (finely sliced)
  • 4-5 Green chilli (slit lengthwise)
  • 1.5 tsp Ginger & garlic paste (each)
  • 1.5 - 2 tsp Coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel powder
  • A pinch Garam masala
  • 2 cups Thick coconut milk (refer notes)
  • Cashew paste (Optional, refer notes)
  • Coconut oil
  • Salt
  • Curry leaves

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a pan & add finely sliced onions & salt. When onion becomes golden brown color, add green chilli & ginger garlic paste. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the masala powders & a 1/2 tsp of oil & fry for 3 minutes. Add cooked potatoes & mix well. Add thick coconut milk & bring to boil. Reduce flame to lowest & add hard boiled eggs & cook till the gravy becomes thick, say around 5 mins. Garnish with coriander leaves. Serve hot with palappam, kallappam, puttu & chapathi.
  • For veg variation:
  • You can use veggies like carrot, beans, cauliflower, green peas etc; Cook the vegetables first & add it along with the potato. Rest of the recipe is same.

Notes

I used potatoes & carrot also for this curry. We need loads of "chaaru" (gravy), so I've used 2 cups of coconut milk, you can adjust the qty to suit your taste. Also if you dont prefer a creamy curry, you can use medium thick coconut milk instead of thick coconut milk. To enhance taste & also give a rich flavor, you can add cashew paste also. Mix the cashew paste in coconut milk & add to the curry. To make cashew paste, soak a small handful of cashews in hot water for 5-7 mins & grind them to a smooth paste.

  4. Hi maria
    Coconut milk – which one u used for this curry instant eastern coconut milk powder or u made the normal one, with the grated coconut. Coz I use the powder but am not getting that thickness for my curry.

    • Hi Jeena,

      I used powdered coconut milk, not the fresh one. I use Maggie coconut milk powder for all my cooking. It gives me thick coconut milk.

      Cheers

  18. Hi Maria
    I made this and came out very nice. I think it is the fennel powder and cashew paste that made the difference from the usual way I prepare. I also tried your mango and tomato chutney with tomato rice. Very nice and easy. Thanks Maria for the effort you take to make the simple recipes tasty and interesting.

  22. Hi Maria,

    Really nice reading your experience !

    I must say that I was excited to see such a wonderful site dedicated to Kerala cuisine. I’ve tried a couple of your recipes and they were an instant hit ! I love prawns and your Prawns Roast was a treat to my taste buds. Your chicken recipes – Malabar Chicken Curry and Coriander Chicken Curry was yummy and my family really enjoyed it. I like to add variety to my cooking and your recipes just seem to fit so perfect. Thanks !

    Regards

  26. Enjoyed the write up Maria…especially about the advantages of being short…surely its inversely proportional to our age.. I guess the advantages are lots more as you get older :-)
    Thanks for the recipe too…never tried this with cashew paste

    • Hi Jaya,

      Thank you :) And yes, the advantages are definitely more when you get older ;)

      Try this with cashew paste, I’m sure you’ll like it.

      Cheers
      Maria

    nice to know that situation in baharin has improved. .
    by the way I have book marked steam pudding recipe. But i ve few doubts too

    • Hi Sumsu,

      Thanks dear :)

      Try adding cashew paste next time you make this ok…Btw, I havent tried egg varutharacha curry. Is it like chicken varutharachathu?

      Which pudding did you bookmark & what are your doubts dear? I dont remember seeing any of your comments…

      Cheers
      Maria

      • hi maria .. am an eggeterian so dont make chicken at home . so ve no clue. but I simply fry coconut along with red chillies then red chillipowder , turmeric powder coriander powder,egg masala to this mix. and grind it to a fine paste.
        then slightly fry ginger garlic green chiillies, add ground masala and boiled eggs.
        thats all..
        by the way i tried ur steamed honey sponge cake.
        wow it became a great hit.
        u know am neitherl into baking nor do i have an oven.
        I blindly followed ur recipe but cooking time varied. i cooked it for another 10 more minutes.
        but the results were awesome.
        my ten month old boy could not stop eating it.
        thanks to u.
        I ll send u the picture this week.
        am planning to make it more frequent. by the way please share more recipies on steamed cakes or no bake cakes.
        I have bookmarked one steam cake in easy cooking (divya’s) too

        • Hi Sumsu,

          Thanks a lot for sharing your recipe here. I will try that version sometime :)

          Great to know that you liked the steamed sponge cake. I’m specially thrilled to know that your little one liked it the most :) I’ve posted a no bake cheese cake before, please check out the cold cheese cake recipe. Its an easy one too.

          Yep, Divya has many wonderful baking recipes at her place :)

          Cheers
          Maria

  31. That was such a lovely read Maria.You got to work at a bakery..that sounds like fun!What did you teach at the cooking class..I am all eager to know!![I’ve been getting few requests from friends to start cooking classes,but I chicken out!].Did you attend Anita Issac’s classes?Heard she’s quite popular in Ekm.

    Hope the situation in Bahrain is fine now.Take care!

    • Thanks Divs :)

      It was a baking/cooking class. I showed them chocolate cupcake, jam roll, pudding, sandwich & some non veg curries.

      Btw, you can do a whole baking class I think, you’re such an expert baker. I’m sure you will do great. Hope to hear soon about your baking class :)

      Yep, I attended her classes only.

      Cheers
      Maria

  32. Hey Maria…i enjoyed reading through u r experiences with food , my neighbor aunt back home in Aluva, conducts a lot of cooking class and i still remember those days and me and her daughter waiting for the taste tests and stuff, you made me nostalgic with all your write up..between the egg curry looks delicious ketto :)

  33. maria..glad u had a nice time ketto…
    egg potato curry has been making its appearance at home for ages, but i somehow never really made it here. maybe cos its had with appam n i really dont know how to make appam :(

  34. What a coincidence! I made this day before yesterday :) I tried it from “Flavors of the Spice Coast”. Will be posting it next week..Loved your pic!

    I totally enjoyed your write-up, Maria. Good luck with your future cooking classes! I would have definitely attended your classes, if i were in Bahrain :)
