  • 100 ml Olive Oil
  • 2 Potatoes
  • 2 Onions
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 2 tsp Turmeric Powder Haldi
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 5 Eggs
  • 100 ml Water
  • Coriander


  • Heat the oil in pan on medium heat
  • Add the finely sliced onions and cook for 3-4 minutes on medium heat until softened and golden brown ensuring that you stir continuously so the onions do not stick to the pan
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for a further 3-4 minutes until softened
  • Add the salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder and green chilies then cook the spices for 3-4 minutes
  • Peel the potatoes and cut into bite-size chunks – sometimes I leave the skin of the potatoes, but it is up to personal preference
  • Add the potatoes along with the water and bring to a gentle boil before covering with a lid to allow to simmer on low heat for 15-20 minutes
  • Crack the eggs into the curry then gently mix into the curry and cook for 3-4 minutes on low heat until the eggs are cooked through
  • Add the finely chopped coriander then mix to combine
  • Serve with chapatti or naan bread then enjoy!
