Egg curry with goda masala


This is a simple egg curry that I made a couple of days back. Goda masala gives a very good aroma and taste to this gravy. It goes very well with yellow rice or chapathis.

3/4 cup fresh/frozen coconut
4 boiled eggs
1 tea spn goda masala
1/4 tea spn tamarind
1/2 tea spn ginger pieces
1/2 tea spn garlic pieces
1/2 tea spn chilli powder (optional)
1/2 cup onion
7-8 curry leaves
A pinch turmeric

Dry roast coconut with ginger, garlic and goda masala, tamarind. Grind to a paste.
Heat oil and fry onion. Add the ground paste and enough water to bring to desired gravy consistency. Add turmeric, salt.
Cut the eggs into two and add to gravy, add curry leaves and cook for few minutes.
Serve hot.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 20mins

    Shilpa: Yes Bee, I too love lentils with this masala. It is a regular at my aunt’s home. Love it.

  4. Hi Shilpa-

    My mouth started watering just looking at the picture!! Looks very yummy.
    I have a question about this recipe; what do we do with the 1/4 tea spn tamarind, that you mentioned in the ingredients list? Please let me know since I dont see the tamaring mentioned in the method.


    Shilpa: Oh sorry. I will update the post.

  5. I have been a silent reader, every single day i used to check for the new recipes u posted and lemme tell u tried out many recipes and was a hit. thanks a lot. Of late i too started my food blog.
    Now coming to the egg curry i have never tried goda masala shall give a try and let u know but the pic is so tempting, my daughter always sits with me and her next order is egg curry:)

  6. when you say 3/4 cup coconut what do you mean? Grated fresh coconut or grated dried coconut–both impart very different flavours to curries

  7. I like this site very much and this egg curry sounds very interesting It looks really yummy
    I have never tried making egg curry in my kitchen as we rarely eat eggs .This recipe sounds very simple and will try making it rightaway ……….thanks

  8. Dear Shilpa,

    I like Maharashtra food and we prepare few dishes also, as my in-laws are from North Karnataka and there is a similarity in food of Maharashtra.

    Can you please name few recipes where we can use Goda Masala. I am not sure whether we can use it for our everyday Sambar, Sabjis etc., or is it used rarely for special or particular recipes only. Please clarify.



    Shilpa: It can be added to many dishes (not all). I have a couple of recipes with goda masala on the site. Please use search box to search for them.

  9. i cooked this curry along with the yellow rice today, and it came out really well. thanks a tonne for your website.. 🙂
