Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

Curried Eggs; or The Headache That Wouldn't Die


Non-stop headache, so my sweet husband made dinner. Hooray for that.

From a cookbook we don't use nearly often enough, The Cook's Encyclopedia of Vegetarian Cooking, Curried Eggs.

Hard boiled eggs on a surprisingly sour curry; onion, ginger, cumin, garam masala, tomato paste, tandoori paste, cream and S&P.

Despite the bitterness, when eaten with the eggs, it really worked! A bit spicy, but the hard boiled egg tempered the heat.

Served with Rice with Spices and Seeds, and (horrors!) a store-bought dish; Kitchens of India's Black Gram Lentils Curry; it was like an actual meal!

I have to say...I loved the Black Curry. It was smooth, creamy...and tasted strangely like Dinte More! Really, really good. And totally vegetarian. It was inexpensive, and I think it'd even work as a flavoring for soup (how they got that amazing beef-like flavor, I may never know).

So, I'll be heading to bed soon, OD-ing on Aleve, and hoping I wake up not wanting a lobotomy.

Don't forget; Blog Party#4: The Gang's All Here: The Holiday Edition is coming soon! There's no such thing as a too early submission! Entries can be left in link format here, in the comments, or you may email them to me at thehappysorceress at gmail dot com.
Hope to see you there!

hi stephanie,
i love curried eggs myself, and have eaten quite a few variations yet. my favourite contains only very well sauteed/fried onion and tomatoes till very soft, and then some cumin powder, chilli and salt. add a dash of garam masala and you have a winner... yum!
cam to your site through sweetnics- i just love all you guys' food blogs!

Hi golliwog, and welcome!

This was my first time with curried eggs, but I'm willing to try more. Yum.

Oh, and I adore the BBC Pride and Prejudice, too! May be the best version. Ever.

I am a new fan of curried eggs! yumyumyum!
We at Naughty Curry recently cooked up an egg curry from another blogger, Marathi-style. Big hit! I was a bit cagey about the large amount of fennel she called for, but it ended up being sublimely jazzy.

Hi Courtney!

Ooh...Naughty Curry? I'm intrigued...

I'd have been a bit worried about the fennel, as well; not a spice I regularly reach for!

Glad it worked for you.

And neat, isn't it, how the eggs work so well with the curry?
