South Indian Style Egg Curry (Keto friendly)

After toying with the idea of making a video recipe for the longest time, I have finally decided to take the plunge and do it! This is my very first attempt at making one, and hope you enjoy it.I have chosen a simple recipe to kick start a series (hopefully!) of video recipes. This is a go-to egg curry recipe in my home. This has become a regular feature in my meal plans since starting the ketogenic way of life. A great low-carb curry delivering the goods. Ticks the box for flavour, nutrition and wholesomeness.

Serves: 3


  • Oil – 1/2 tblspn
  • Boiled eggs – 3
  • Garlic – 2 cloves
  • Onion – 20 g
  • Tomato – 30g
  • Curry leaves (optional) – 4 to 5
  • Coriander leaves chopped 1 tblspn
  • Green chillies (optional) – 4, slit
  • Red chilli powder – 2 tspns
  • Garam masala – 1 tspn
  • Coriander powder – 1 tspn
  • Sambhar powder – 1tspn
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tspn
  • Asafoetida (optional) – ¼ tspn
  • Salt – To taste
  • Water – As required for curry thickness

1. These proportions are suited for ketogenic and low-carb lifestyles. Adjust the quantities to suit your needs. That includes the eggs too.
2. I like my curry spicy and have included chillies and chilli powder to suit my taste. Adjust spice levels based on your preference.
3. Replace oil with ghee or butter.


  1. In a keto diet…what do you accompany this dish with? I’m would love to know what people substitute rice and roti with?

      Hi Sukanya, I don’t typically need rice or rotis as I have more than just egg curry. Sometimes it is a salad, 2 or 3 other curries with or without paneer. If I really feel like rice, I would use cauliflower rice or use konjac rice or noodles, which are very low in carbs and keto compliant. Feel free to follow me on @kitcheningabout at Instagram or look up my Facebook page in the same name and I share a lot of meal ideas that are mostly Indian food and low carb.
