Simple Malaysian Egg Curry Recipe

Friday is considered our meat-free day in our house and I often cook either fish pie, salmon tortilla or egg curry for dinner. There are many ways of making this simple curry, this is just one of them. I have used cabbage in my curry as well as dried anchovies (ikan bilis) but you can omit both or use anchovies/chicken/vegetable granules instead.  I have also served the curry with a mixed vegetable dish as well as rice and papadums. I also tend to add a dollop of of Greek Yoghurt on my children’s plate to make the curry less spicy as I have used Malaysian Meat Curry powder (you can use any mild curry powder instead).

In this recipe, I have also added a little bit of coconut milk (this is optional) as well as ground almonds to help thicken the curry (again, you can omit this is you have a nut allergy).

Here’s a short youtube video on how to make this simple Egg Curry.
