Egg Bajji Curry

Egg Bajji Curry, Fried Egg Bajjis dipped in a mild spiced tomato onion gravy and coconut fennel paste. Adding Fennel seeds to the coconut paste brings an special flavour to the curry. 

Egg bajji Curry taste different from usual egg curries. That day I had some Left over Egg bajji from our breakfast, So I planned for this curry with those leftover Bajji’s. Totally yum Curry, when you make from scratch the whole process looks lengthy. But if you are a eggetarian then there is no offence in making some Egg bajji’s for morning breakfast or for Evening tea time, and converting those left over to make this yummy curry for lunch or for dinner. Only few bajji are enough to make this curry.

    This curry looks so easy to make if you have the egg bajji already prepared. I like the idea of using coconut milk for an Indian style curry.

    I love recipes where you can use left overs and create a new dish with them. A great idea to waste less. The gravy in your recipe looks so rich this would go well with steamed rice or parathas.

    I’m not a fan of curry but this looks quite nice. I’ll have to give it a try one day.
