Varutharacha Mutta Curry (Egg Curry)

Another varutharacha curry to my list. This different version of varutharacha curry recipe was shared by one of my friend. I really luv this with Puttu and Ghee Rice. In fact it takes just half an hour to cook this. Once the curry is cooked, the smell will really make any one hungry!!. "It's easy to capture pics of this curry but how can I capture this wonderful smell?" my hubby was commenting... :)

Egg - 4 no.s
Grated Coconut - 3/4 cup
Onion - 1 medium (Sliced half length wise)
Shallots - 10 nos. (Sliced into half)
Garlic - 3 cloves (Chopped into fine pieces)
Ginger - 1/2 inch (Chopped into fine pieces)
Tomato - 1 medium (Sliced into big 6 pieces)
Curry Leaves - few
Coriander Powder - 1 1/2 t spoon
Red Chilly Powder - 2 t spoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 t spoon
Chicken Masala Powder - 1/4 t spoon
Salt - to taste
Mustard Seeds - 1 t spoon
Cooking Oil - 3 table spoon

  1. Heat a pan and roast the grated coconut. (If needed you can add oil for roasting but I normally don't prefer it.)
  2. Once it turns light brown add coriander powder, roast it well.
  3. Once roasted, transfer to a bowl and allow it to cool. Grind this into a paste using a mixer/grinder.
  4. Boil the eggs, remove the shell and keep it aside after slicing in to half.
  5. Heat 2 table spoon of oil in an earthen pot and add ginger, garlic and shallots and saute well.
  6. Add sliced onions and saute again.
  7. Add salt, turmeric, chilly powder, chicken masala and mix well.
  8. Add sliced tomato and mix. Pour 1/4 cup water.
  9. Add the sliced egg pieces and mix with the masala softly without breaking the eggs.
  10. Then add the grinded paste with 1/2 cup of water.
  11. Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes. Once ready transfer it to a bowl.
  12. Heat a pan and add 1 table spoon of oil.
  13. Add mustard seeds & curry leaves.
  14. Transfer it over the cooked curry.
Ready to serve with Ghee rice, Puttu, Chappathi, White Rice etc. It taste well if you garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
