Lovers of authentic Indian cuisine will know that curries can take some time to prepare – well, with Gizzi Erskine’s Keralan egg curry you can enjoy an authentic dish that embodies classic flavours that takes less time than you think!

Gizzi says: The boiled eggs in this recipe need to be cooked for six minutes, to give them that firm white and slightly soft yolk. Serve them in halves on top of the curry or cut them into smaller pieces and mix into the dish."

  • 2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 3/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tomato, finely chopped
  • 200ml coconut milk
  • 100g petite pois
  • 2 tablespoons coriander leaves, chopped
  • Chapattis or rice to serve

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
