How to make Shrimp and Egg Curry

Step 1To prepare this mouth-watering egg curry recipe, put a sauce pan on medium flame and add water in it along with tamarind paste, bring it to a boil. Lower the flame and let it simmer until reduced to a quarter.

Step 2Next, heat oil in a deep-bottomed non-stick pan on medium flame and add chopped onions in it along with curry leaves. Saute until light golden and then add garlic-ginger paste, green chillies, and red chilli powder in the pan, saute until the moisture is evaporated.

Step 3Then add tomatoes (ensure it is sliced and the pulp is removed) and stir-fry until oil leaves the sides. Afterwards, add shrimps in the pan and stir for a minute. Remove the pan from heat and stir-in the coconut milk, return the pan to heat and bring it to a boil. (Note: Make sure that it does not come to a bubble or the coconut milk will curdle).

Transfer the shrimp curry to a serving bowl, and garnish with boiled eggs, cut into half and serve with steamed rice.
