In this post, I have shown how a simple Dhaba style egg curry recipe | How to make egg curry is made. But the tips mentioned below will help you alter some ingredients for the other depending on your taste & availability of the ingredients.
1. Spice powders:
I used cumin and garam masala powder you can also use whole spices if don’t have powered ones. Cumin, bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamoms & cloves are the whole spices that are used in an egg curry. However, you can use whatever you have in hand. Even one or 2 kinds of spices will enhance the aroma of the dish. If you have mustard seeds just go ahead and use them.

Basic egg curry is made without any cream, cashews or coconut milk. We Indians make most regular curries without any of those. Only for occasions, I do add them. Here are some variations you can make to the egg curry.
If you prefer a creamy egg curry, then add in 3 to 4 tbsps of cream towards the end.
You can also add about 8 to 10 cashews to add a milky aroma to the gravy. They also add volume to the dish.
