The sauce or gravy can vary depending on the recipe and can include ingredients such as onions, garlic, tomatoes, spices, and herbs. Egg stew is often served with rice, bread, or roti/chapati. It's a satisfying and versatile dish that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Here's a simple recipe for egg stew:


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Start by boiling the eggs. Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and let them simmer for about 8-10 minutes. Once done, remove the eggs from the heat, cool them under cold running water, and peel them. Set them aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or pot over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic and sauté until they become translucent and fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the diced bell pepper and tomatoes to the skillet. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes until the vegetables soften.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the curry powder, paprika, cumin powder, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Add this spice mixture to the skillet and stir well, coating the vegetables evenly.
  5. Gently place the boiled eggs into the skillet, ensuring they are nestled among the vegetables. Allow them to simmer in the stew for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  6. Taste the stew and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer a thinner consistency, you can add a little water or vegetable broth to the stew.
  7. Once the eggs are heated through and the flavors have melded together, remove the skillet from the heat.
  8. Serve the egg stew hot, garnished with fresh cilantro or parsley if desired. It pairs well with steamed rice or crusty bread.

Enjoy your homemade egg stew!

Faq About Egg Stew Recipe

Here are some frequently asked questions about egg stew recipes:

Q: Can I use raw eggs instead of hard-boiled eggs?
A: Generally, egg stew recipes call for hard-boiled eggs because they hold their shape better during cooking and absorb the flavors of the sauce. However, you can experiment with raw eggs if you prefer a different texture. Just be cautious of cooking them thoroughly to ensure they are safe to eat.

Q: Can I use different spices in the stew?
A: Absolutely! Egg stew recipes can be customized to suit your taste preferences. Feel free to adjust the spices and herbs according to your liking. You can add chili powder for some heat, garam masala for an Indian twist, or any other spices you enjoy.

Q: Can I add vegetables to the egg stew?
A: Yes, adding vegetables is a great way to enhance the flavor and nutritional value of the stew. Common vegetables that pair well with egg stew include bell peppers, peas, carrots, and potatoes. Simply chop or dice the vegetables and add them to the stew during the cooking process.

Q: Can I make the stew ahead of time?
A: Yes, you can prepare the stew ahead of time and reheat it when ready to serve. Store the cooked stew in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop or in the microwave, adding a little water or broth if needed to adjust the consistency.

Q: Can I freeze egg stew?
A: It's generally not recommended to freeze egg stew because the texture of the eggs may change upon thawing. The sauce and vegetables may also become mushy. However, if you don't mind the texture change, you can freeze it in a freezer-safe container for up to 2-3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat thoroughly before serving.
