Yay! Today is the first official day of autumn. Happy Fall my dear friends. Are you guys thrilled for the colors?
As warm food season is here again, so there should be some comfy food too. And for me, it can’t get any better than a curry. So are we on for a curry at this beginning of the autumn? I really love the beauty of autumn and the remarkable warmth and magic of autumn colors.
Sending you some cool breeze:
I am just loving the fact that the days are getting colder but still sunny and bright. This makes me love this season even more. I mean cold winds, beautiful colors, and sunny weather. Isn’t it dreamy? Who wouldn’t love this sight? But for those who are still struggling with the hot weather, I wish you get some cooler winds soon.
Do I need an excuse?
Well, it’s not that I need an excuse to make a curry. But this one is my family’s favorite. Husband and Little A go gaga over this egg curry. I always keep hard boiled eggs in my fridge, so it is also convenient to cook.

Some days when Husband comes home after work, he says: “I am really very tired and super hungry today, and I want something really filler for dinner tonight.”
Me: “What do you want for dinner? Any specific choices?”
Husband: “Do we have eggs?”
Husband: “Could you make some egg curry, coz I am really craving for it”.
I: Yes, of course. But one question, though, are you hungry or you are craving for egg curry?"
Husband: “Let’s take it as a craving! Don’t put so much effort I just want some simple egg curry and that would make my day.” 😉
And this conversation between us happens all the time whenever Husband wants egg curry! 🙂

Eggs are must:
And I know that conversation can happen any day, so I always keep some hard boiled eggs in my fridge.
So the point is when my family is really hungry and wants something quick, tasty, and spicy Indian food, I always go for this egg curry. I quickly serve this with some steamed rice. So egg curry can happen any time of the day at my home! 😉

There is also a chili-free version for Little A as she doesn’t like chili. I know it’s strange. Seems like she is more of a Scandinavian than we are.
One interesting thing — one of my friends’ daughter who’s the same age as Little A, loves spicy hot food. Whenever she comes to my place she eats everything spicy made for elders, but Little A doesn’t.
I just hope Little A would also start eating spicy food and I wouldn’t have to make a chili-free version for her every time I make hot food!
You can see I am already super excited about this curry! 🙂

Who would say no to this Egg Curry?
As I mentioned earlier, this egg curry is a north Indian version of this flavorful dish. Tell me, who wouldn’t like to combine two of their favorite things, eggs, and curry? Try this curry, if some guests are coming home — this would make a quick and exceptional dinner side dish. The good thing about this sauce is that it can be made a day before. And when you have guests, then simply add boiled eggs and cook for a while. Tada, you are good to go.
Orchestra of flavors the curry sauce:
This rich sauce is made using onions, ginger, garlic, chilies, tomatoes, and an infusion of aromatic Indian spices. Like I always say you can adjust spices according to your taste. This delicious curry is best served with naan, tandoori roti, rice or any other flatbread. But you can also serve this with quinoa or couscous if you wish.
