Egg Curry with Squash & Ginger

Egg Curry with Squash & Ginger

Home | Recipes | Family Favourites | Vegan & Vegetarian

This egg curry is a bit of a mix of influences, with Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste supplying the heat whilst many of the other flavours are Southeast Asian and Indian-inspired.

We think it shows just how well fusion food can work. Eggs offer a great alternative to meat in curries; give it a go and see what you think.

How to make it

  1. Fry the onions for 5 minutes in a little vegetable oil over a medium heat in a large frying pan.
  2. Add the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Add the ground coriander, turmeric, ginger, garlic, cinnamon stick and a handful of roughly chopped coriander stalks and most of the leaves (hold some back for serving). Continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add the squash, stir and cook for about 15 minutes.
  5. Add the coconut milk, vegetable stock and butter. Stir and leave to thicken up for 15 minutes over a low–medium heat.
  6. Now is a good time to cook the rice.
  7. Add the eggs to a pan of boiling water and continue to boil for 6 minutes. Drain, then cover in cold water. Leave to cool before carefully peeling. Cut them in half lengthways.
  8. Add the halved eggs to the top of the curry, and serve with rice. Top each bowl with toasted almonds and pumpkin seeds and a sprinkling of the reserved coriander leaves.
