Hot and Sweet Egg Curry

Your garden is the place where you find yourself when you need to lose yourself.

Growing peace-prosperity-serenity-tranquility and beauty in your garden will reach you towards God.

There’s this beautiful garden sprouted afresh on the scorching sands … on the burnt, blackened land of my backyard.


Okra and Okra blossoms from my garden :)


Red Hot Chili Peppers :)


Cherry Tomatoes. Homegrown.


Beans from my garden. শিম :)


That garden is also a lush harbor of flowers, bees, birds, butterflies.

Gardening is an ancient act of art and independence indeed. And cooking is the most beautiful act of survival. Cooking a simple curry that tastes like the night sky dressed in midnight pearls and stars is like creating a majestic masterpiece.

A taste of sweetness mixed with heat, dirt, earth….


Eggs cooked in onion-tomato-ginger. Darn yummy :)



6 hard boiled eggs

2 tablespoon olive oil

1 large onion. Finely chopped

1 teaspoon fresh ginger. Grated

1 medium tomato. Chopped

4-5 green chilies/peppers


Salt to taste



In a heated pan, pour oil and sauté onions and ginger in medium heat for 5 minutes. Add eggs, tomato chunks and salt. Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Sprinkle whole peppers and chopped herbs. Put the lid back on. Turn off the stove. Let the caramelized onions waltz with the gentle, humble heat of the peppers and earthiness of the ginger. Serve with rice/roti.


Your eyes will admire the amber glow of the curry. Your ears will listen happily the subtle sizzling wind chime-like sound while it’s cooking. Your hypnotized heart will stretch skyward after savoring it.

  1. Love this recipe! So flavorful, and it packs some heat too. My kind of dish. Gorgeous photos! Such a great post — thanks.

  2. I would love to get lose myself in your garden. So beautiful. What an intriguing dish. I have never made anything like it. I can’t wait to try this.

    • Recent storm PATRICIA has turned my garden upside down 😦 But that’s ok. Plants were about to die away, anyway, as winter is creeping in. Next summer, you’re invited to be my guest as long as you want. I’ll make you some hot&sweet egg curry, for sure 🙂

  3. Nusrat, I don’t think I’ve ever seen okra so beautifully photographed. (Or at least that’s what I THINK it is… I’m soooo not a horticulturist, ha!) But, I love gardens, your thoughts, photos, subsequent recipe, and inspiring instructions — and, the prospect of this curry. xo

  4. Such stunning photos Nusrat. Congratulations on winning DMBLGit – Sreelatha
