How to make Egg Assad / Pondicherry Style Egg Curry

  2. Extract milk from the coconut around 3 1/2 cups. Coarsely crush the shallots, garlic pods, 1 sprig curry leaves, mustard seeds and jeera. Keep it aside.
  3. Heat oil in a vessel add the bay leaves. Then add the sliced onion and crushed onion masala saute it until it turns translucent. Then add chopped tomatoes. Saute it until it turns mushy.
  4. Add the red chilli powder, coriander powder and saute until the raw smell goes away. Now add the coconut milk, cubed potatoes and salt. Bring to a boil.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, add the boiled eggs, boil it for another 5 minutes. turn off the flame. Now add the lemon juice and remaining 1 sprig curry leaves. Cover with a lid.
  6. After 10 minutes serve hot with white rice, Idli /Dosa and Appam.

My Tip:

For vegetarian add only the potato. Instead of egg you can also use fish too. In case if you use fish, first clean the fish and marinate it with salt and red chilli powder for 10 minutes. Then shallow fry and keep it aside. Then follow the rest of the procedure.
