Spicy Egg Or Masala Egg



A spicy egg curry. Very easy recipe and taste is finger licking.

Its very similar to shakshuka. Shakshuka is a traditional Turkish dish. Basic recipe consisting crushed tomatoes, peppers, garlic, salt, paprika, olive oil and poached eggs.

But I made it in Indian style. Little more spicy.


Eggs – 4

Onions – 2-3

Garlic – 3-4 pod. You can add more if you like the garlicky taste

Ginger – 1 inch piece

Tomatoes – 2 large

Green chilli  – 1-2 or as per your spice tolerance

Salt to taste

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 3/4 tsp

Kashmiri red chilli powder – 1 tbsp.

Garam masala powder – 1/2 tsp

Cream or malai – 2-3 tbsp

Oil – 2 tbsp


Make a paste of onions, garlic, green chilli and ginger.

Grind the tomatoes.

Heat oil in a broad pan. Add onion garlic ginger paste.

Fry well then add the tomato paste. Stir well.

Add all the spices and salt.

When the masala fried well and the oil leaves the sides add the cream or malai. ( beat well before adding) Stir continuously.

When dried up add little water. Let it boil.

Now break the eggs one by one and drop on the masala. Don’t overlap keep the eggs separate.

Just like you make half fry or poached egg.

Cover the pan cook on low flame for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes flip the eggs.

And again cook on low flame covered.

And your masala egg or spicy egg is ready. Isn’t a easy recipe? Easy and delicious.

Serve hot with steamed rice, naan, bread or paratha.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
