What is eggless egg curry?

Eggless Egg Curry is a spicy preparation of potatoes in onion tomato gravy. Boiled potatoes are mashed and shaped as eggs and cooked in spicy gravy to make an offbeat recipe. Eggless egg curry is nothing but differently presented  potato curry that is very flavourful and delicious and of course hot!

Let’s talk about the ingredients for eggless egg curry

Eggless Egg Curry Recipe calls for eggs! But we are making the eggless version for which we will replace the eggs with some potatoes shaped as egg. We need baby potatoes, which are just boiled. Make sure not to over boil the potatoes otherwise they will break when scooped. The gravy is spicy and delicious made of onions and tomatoes flavoured with ginger, garlic and whole spices. The final garnishing of coriander and kasuri methi adds a good freshness to otherwise spicy gravy.
