This Egg Masala Curry or Anda masala is nothing but boiled eggs in a simple spicy tomato gravy. This is the 5th video in the Learn to Cook - Eggs series. In the series, you have seen so far that simply having eggs in your fridge can be an easy problem solver for a quick meal. Today let's take a step ahead and try to make the new dish by adding eggs in a curry.

The interesting thing about this dish is, you will find this on the menu in almost all places but the taste of it will differ form place to place. This egg masala recipe is just my version of the dish, if you have your version, please leave a comment below, I would love to try other versions of this dish.

For me, it's a go-to dish when you are not prepared or when there are some unexpected guests and you are taken completely off guard and don't know what to cook, this is the perfect recipe that you can cook in a quick time, it also looks very presentable and the best of it, it's tasty.

    Hi I am Akshay

    I am a Software Engineer by profession but a foodie at heart. I am in love with food! I enjoy the explosion of flavours on my taste buds and am always ready to try different cuisines. One of my fondest memories as a child is sitting on the kitchen counter, watching my mother cook. But as I travelled for work, I missed the tastes of home.
    And that was the birth of Simply Simple Cooking YouTube Channel & later this blog.
