Ways To Make Drumstick Egg Masala Curry
As mentioned before, this recipe is popular and common in South Indian households. Hence, you are going to find multiple recipes and different ways to make this over the internet.
One of the most common ways to make this curry is the way we made it. You can make this dish with the same recipe. However, there is another way as well. Even if the other recipe requires the same ingredients and does also not differ much from what we have done.
The major difference in that recipe will be of handling the eggs. In this recipe, the eggs are boiled and then added to the gravy. But the other way it will not be so.
The remaining process of making the curry will remain the same and the eggs are to be added at the end. However, when it will come to adding eggs this method will not use them after boiling. Instead, the eggs will directly be added to the curry.
Add the eggs gently to the curry base being careful not to break them. Then cover the pan with the lid and cook for five minutes. The dish is ready to be served then.
TR’s Extra Shots:
- Be careful not to overcook the drumsticks. They tend to split open if they turn too soft while overcooking.
- The level of spices can be adjusted as per your taste buds.
- Likewise, you can use any special masala available from the market.
- Apart from the regular onion and tomato, people sometimes also add brinjal and potato to the curry as well.
- Moreover, the eggs are to be put at the final stage, or the dish’s texture may not be right. One can have this dish even without eggs or with chicken, as well.
- Usually, onions are chopped and tempered in oil. But we are making a paste of it instead. Both methods are acceptable.
