For the Curry Filling:

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 small potato, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika (optional for extra heat)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

For the Bread:

  • 4 slices of your favorite bread
  • Butter for toasting


1. Prepare the Curry Filling:

- Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

- Add the chopped onion, garlic, and ginger. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and aromatic.

2. Spice it Up:

- Stir in the curry powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, and paprika (if using). Cook for another minute to toast the spices, allowing their flavors to bloom.

3. Add Veggies:

- Toss in the chopped carrot, potato, and frozen peas. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté for a few minutes until the vegetables start to soften.

4. Simmer with Water:

- Pour in the water, and let the mixture simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the sauce thickens. You may need to add more water if it gets too dry.

5. Hard-Boil the Eggs:

- While the curry is simmering, hard-boil the eggs. Place them in a pot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 9-12 minutes. Then, transfer the eggs to an ice bath to cool, peel, and slice.

6. Toast the Bread:

- Butter one side of each bread slice. Toast them in a skillet until they're golden brown and crispy.

7. Assemble the Egg Curry Bread:

- Place a generous spoonful of the curry filling on a slice of toasted bread. Top with sliced hard-boiled eggs.

- Finish with another slice of toasted bread to create a delicious sandwich.

8. Serve and Enjoy:

- Cut your Egg Curry Bread sandwiches in half diagonally and serve them warm. They're perfect for a hearty breakfast or a satisfying brunch.

The result? A mouthwatering fusion of curry's rich, savory goodness with the simplicity of a breakfast sandwich. The creamy hard-boiled eggs complement the spicy, aromatic curry filling perfectly, making each bite a delightful adventure in flavor.

So, gather your ingredients and give this Egg Curry Bread a try. It's a fantastic way to enjoy the flavors of curry in a new and exciting form. Happy cooking and savoring! 🍳🍛
