How to Make Best Punjabi Egg Masala Curry
- The key to this Punjabi egg curry recipe is in the cooking the masala. Make sure that you cook the masala properly so it is neither raw nor overcooked and browned. Just stop cooking the masala as soon as it starts to leave the sides of the pan. Sometimes overcooking makes the masala taste slightly bitter.
- Keep stirring the masala in the pan while the masala for egg masala curry is being cooked, if you feel it is getting too dry and there is a risk of burning you can always add 1-2 tbsp of water and keep it cooking.
Some people add cream or cashew paste during the cooking in this rich curry. But if you know me, you know that I don’t like to add too much of fat in our everyday cooking. So, I make the egg curry with skim milk, which gives it a pretty good taste and keeps it healthy.
If I am making rich dhaba style egg masala curry for the party or just for Indulgence, I may add some cream or cashew cream to make gravy richer.
For every day, Punjabi Egg Curry masala just replace cream with skimmed milk. You will be surprised that just doing this swap will save you 100 calories per serving. So you choose what you want. I use skim milk 97% of the time except for very few times when some get-togethers or special request to make it rich.
This recipe of Masala Egg curry is healthy because at approximately 200 calories per portion. You still have scope to add some bread or flatbread to mop the gravy or even rice if you are feeling like a comfort meal type of dinner 🙂
If you love eggs and dishes made with eggs. Do give try to these dishes, I am sure few of them can become your favorite too. As far as I am concerned I am a big fan of all of them 🙂
