Eggs in a Tomato Curry

Egg curry is nothing fancy!! The same old curry with onions, tomatoes and flavoured with the forever flavourful garam masala, both in the whole and the ground avatar. My husband loves it, my family loves it, I love it....so when I run out of ingredients or ideas, egg curry is always there waiting for me with a relaxed smile on its face to save my day.

Eggs are versatile and we Bengalis just love them. Poached, fried, sunny side up, hard boiled, half boiled, steamed and in curries...we are quite crazy with eggs. Actually we prefer Duck eggs to the chicken, because of their large size and the opaque orange coloured yolk, but since they are hard to come by in the more recent times, and are more expensive than the chicken eggs, more often we try to quench our thirst with chicken eggs. The whiff of fried eggs or omelette with some onions and finely chopped hot green chillies is enough to make us salivate in a public place on broad day light. Sunny side up with a sprinkle of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper is hugely popular in the small tea stalls on the streets. And journey by the train is incomplete for us without a few buy of hard boiled eggs from the vendors. Even during Durga Puja you will find people selling omelette and boiled eggs, sitting in a corner of the street with the bare minimum essentials. So you see we just love eggs.
