Hard boiled eggs in a curry sauce. Serve with rice or on toast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Hard boil the eggs, using your favorite method. Cool slightly and peel. Cut them in half lengthwise.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan and saute the onion and garlic, until onion is just soft.
  3. Stir in the curry powder, tomato paste, water, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Allow the mixture to cook over a low heat until it is just bubbling.
  4. Add egg halves to onion mixture and stir gently, until reheated through. Add a little more water if sauce gets too thick.
  5. Add lemon zest and parsley. Stir again and serve while hot.

This is wonderful and simple. I cooked the eggs whilst the sauce was cooking too, other than that I made it as is. I think next time I will try poaching the eggs in the sauce as I prefer a bit of runny yolk. Thanks for sharing!

Unlike anything I've had before! The sauce was so easy to make, and would be good with just about any veggies and/or meat.

This is great. Only thing I didn't have was parsley!! I may do this dish on a Boy Scout camping trip, just that I will cook the eggs at home. Made for Football Pool 2012.
