I wanted to make egg curry in Karnataka style for some time and this recipe is Gowda style, we can make chicken curry also in same way if we like. This curry is similar to most curry recipe only we use coconut and whole spices here which makes the saaru delicious.


The whole spices which added for tempering brings wonderful flavor to the curry so we should not miss that along with fresh coconut paste this egg korma is delicious, if don't want lot of gravy then reduce water quantity to serve as a side with paratha or poori too. We can also serve this with pottu it makes excellent side dish with that too.

Serve hot with rice, jeera rice, coconut rice and enjoy the curry.

  • The good red color comes from the chili powder and tomato paste, make sure to use good kashmiri color of red color and if you don't mind that color then it's fine.
  • Don't skip the whole spices (garam masala) as they add good flavor to the curry.
  • Reduce red chili powder if you think it will be too spicy for you.

Delicious, spicy egg curry.
