Egg Curry in Green Tomato Gravy

Egg curry in green tomato gravy


I did a little experiment in my kitchen. Made egg curry and instead of ripe red tomatoes, I added unripe or green tomatoes. The result was fantastic. 

Egg curry is one of the most easiest recipe which I like to cook when I get no time for cooking.  Sometimes when I have nothing else to cook for dinner, I make egg curry. Basically I add potatoes in egg curries and sometimes I like to add okra in the curry. I don't really remember when I cooked egg curry for the first time but my mother  often used to cook egg curry when I was a kid. I enjoyed my mother's egg curries a lot but my kids don't enjoy eating egg curry.  So I don't often cook egg curries. I cook egg curry for my husband and me. My kids love boiled eggs only.  But my son enjoys the gravy.

So the other day I made egg curry in green tomato gravy. I had two green tomatoes left in my refrigerator. These were the same green tomatoes I received from my dad and from which I made Green tomato pickle. Well those green tomato pickle is ready to serve now.  Without further delay let's jump to the recipe now.

SalemMango: Pure Groundnut Oil and Pure Coconut Oil Review

Pure Coconut oil (Thengai Ennai) is one of the most versatile oil which not only can be used for skin and hair but also is edible and can be used in place of vegetable oil or butter. Coconut oil is a little different from other cooking oil. It contains several types of healthy saturated fats. In recent years coconut oil is gaining popular because of its versatility and health benefits.

Bhoot Jolokia Pickle / Ghost Chilli Pickle

Bhoot jolokia/Bhut jolokia (ভোট জলকীয়া) or Ghost chilli is one of the hottest chilli on earth cultivated basically in Assam and some other parts of northeast India. The bhoot jolokias are two or three inches long and starts out green in colour.  It turns red only when ripened.  This ripened ghost chilli in the first bite gives an intense sweet chilli flavor.  The heat doesn't kick at the beginning. As you started chewing it, the heat kicks in and your mouth started burning together starts sweating and watery eyes.

Don't touch ghost chilli with bare hands after cutting.  But as we Assamese people do not use spoon and fork and eat our meal with our fingers, we have the practice of touching this red hot chili with our bare hands. Do you remember the Indian chilli queen Anandita Dutta Tamuly.  She is know for eating and rubbing bhoot jolokia on her bare eyes. But you don't try this and don't even touch bhoot jolokia with bare hands if you don't have practice.  Today I m…

Fish Egg Bhurji | Scrambled Fish Egg and Bamboo shoots

My blog has completed 3 years of its blogging journey this August, but the blog still needs to grow and I have still need to learn many things. This is the first post of the 4th year of my blogging journey and it is about a simple recipe of scrambled fish egg or fish egg bhurji . I made this recipe little special by adding "khorisa"- grated and fermented bamboo shoots. 

Fish usually lay eggs during monsoon season. Therefore there is a ban on fishing during monsoon in local rivers and ponds in Assam so that the local fishes do not get extinguished. The exported fish and fish from the fisheries are available in the market and fish roe or fish eggs are also widely available during the season. It is usually served as fritters, or as deep fried or shallow fried. Making scrambled fish eggs is very easy and it tastes very yummy.

Monsoon is also the season for bamboo shoots. During this season the raw bamboo shoots are widely available and therefore we preserve it in bottles for ferme…

Fish and Roselle leaves curry

Fish and Roselle leaves curry is an easy and tasty Assamese style sour fish curry recipe (মাছৰ টেঙা). Roselle leaves (Tenga mora / টেঙা মৰা ) contains many vitamins and minerals and high dietary fiber. In Assam it's widely available during summer.  Eating sour fish curry in lunch or dinner is a good idea during summer to beat the hot and humid weather in Assam. You can prepare this fish curry by using only roselle leaves.  But I have added red lentils to make the curry thicker. We don't use spices in making sour fish curries.  But if you like to make it spicy, add spices according to your taste.
