I really liked the idea of an egg curry, but this was a little bland for us. I even added extra of all the spices after tasting and it still didn't perk up. I definately wouldn't add the water next time. Maybe 1/2 cup. I boiled it for about 15-20 minutes trying to thicken it up again. Added potatoes and peas. Wasn't bad and I do like the eggs, but the sauce just didn't do it for us. Fun way to use up the Easter eggs though, and I always like something different.

Yummm! Thank you so much for posting this! This was just like my mom's egg curry - it's just hard to get a recipe from her since she never measures anything! :) Very economical too if you already have the spices on hand. Thanks again!

Delicious! I left out the chilies because my two year old can't take the heat just yet. Also I reduced it to two large onions. I also pureed the curry in the blender before adding the eggs. Turned out very well. Next time I think I will add green peas and potatoes.
