Three countries on one plate

We are still making our way through leftovers and surplus bits from last week's market. Last night's supper was a whirlwind trip around the world on one plate. Jambalaya from the southern USA, curried eggs and Trish's garlicky tzatziki.

The best tzatziki - only available at the McGregor Market

I have long wanted to make curried eggs and had hard boiled eggs left over from the scotch eggs, taking up space in the fridge. According to my consultations on the interweb, curried eggs are either British or Indian. I lent towards the ethnic Indian recipes I came across and combined these ideas.
Frying hard boiled eggs in spices

The hard boiled eggs, pricked, were fried in sizzling mustard, cumin and fenugreek seeds and set aside.

Onions, garlic, ginger and spices

Then, with the spices, I sautéed an onion and added garlic, ginger and a couple of cardamom pods. Finally, I added half a teaspoon of curry powder. Once the onion was transparent, a can of chopped tomatoes went into the wok. I did have to add a little sugar because the tomatoes were a little more sharp than worked with the spices.

The eggs went into that bubbling mixture to heat through.

Three countries on one African plate

I served the three countries on Trish's fab plates.

Remarkably, the flavours really worked together well.

I will do this again. Whether the three countries will land up in one place again, I am not sure as I think that naan bread might just trump the jambalaya.

Until next time, be well

Everything looks so tasty as usual 😋 I've never tried curried eggs. But it seems a great meal for an easy dinner, so I take note.
Happy weekend :)

I want to do them again. Then I'll properly measure what I'm doing. I was rather pleased and yes, easy. And good for a low carb option.

Your meals always look so delicious Fiona! I must make curried eggs some time, have not made it for ages but will actually be a good non-carb meal. Hubby's trying to lose his little 'boep', so he's doing a semi- keto (cheating a bit, but he needs a little carb otherwise he gets hypoglycemic. It's a fine balancing act!

I'd be interested in your curried eggs recipe, Lizelle. We used to get them at boarding school, occasionally. I don't remember really what they were like. Yes, I imagine that managing to lose cut carbs and manage blood sugar is a fine balancing act. He's lucky you take such good care of him!
