Egg Gravy is a simple and easy egg curry in a South Indian Style. For South Indian Style gravies and curries ,either fresh coconut or coconut milk is added to get that typical taste. This is a easy onion and tomato based egg gravy with addition of fresh coconut , poppy seeds and cashew/ melon seeds paste.

Easy Egg Gravy

There are many variants of Egg based gravies and curries, I do. But this one is the most simplest , which I often do.This Egg Gravy is not very thick or its thin . It has a medium consistency and goes on well with steamed rice too. One of my favourite Egg Masala recipe which I have already shared is Kolhapuri Egg Masala . Also do check Scrambled Egg Curry and Poached Egg Curry , it may interest you.

This Egg gravy goes well with Ghee Rice, Kushka , Jeera Rice or even with Roti / Phulka. I served this Egg Curry with caramelized onion ghee rice , which was rich and delicious.
