Egg Kuruma !

Egg Kuruma or Mutta Kuruma is a very simple dish where boiled eggs are simmered in a coconut based gravy along with few other aromatic spices. Then masala that is ground for kuruma is usually the same be it veg kuruma or egg kuruma.  When I dont have vegetables then egg always comes to a rescue in any of the gravy forms like this kuruma or Andhra Egg Curry
Check out other easy egg recipes and other similar kuruma recipes below.


To Grind to a paste
  • 1/3 cup fresh coconut bits
  • 2  Green Chillis
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds (Jeera)
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds (Sombu)
  • 1 tsp Poppy Seeds
  • 6 - 7 Whole Cashews 
  • 2 Cloves
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
For Gravy
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Jeera
  • a pinch of asafoedita
  • 1/2 tsp pepper corns
  • 1 meodum onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 Medium Tomatoes
  • salt as needed
  • few curry leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • coirander leaves to garnish

  • Hard boil the eggs and remove their shells, make some slits and keep aside.
  • Grind all the ingredients mentioned under "To Grind" to a smooth paste adding some water to a smooth paste.

  • Heat oil in  pan, add pepper, jeera , hing followed by ginger garlic paste, curry leaves and onions.
  • Saute till onions turn slightly brown.

  • Add tomatoes and saute till they are soft and then add salt and the spice powders.
  • Add a splash of water if needed and allow it to cook till oil separates.

  • Then add the ground paste. adjust water and then bring it to a boil. Sprinkle garam masala and then add the boiled eggs. Close and cook for five minutes and then turn off stove. 

  • Fresh coconut gives best results, and I have not tried with desiccated or frozen coconut. 
  • If you dont have ginger garlic paste then, add a piece of ginger and few garlic cloves along with coconut and grind.
  • Instead of chopped tomatoes, you can also pureed tomatoes. 
  • Adjust water as per the consistency of the gravy you prefer. 
  • Serve with hot rice or rotis.
