This original recipe was created by Chef Das in partnership with Tastemade.


  1. HEAT a 10″ skillet over medium heat. ADD olive oil and onion. SAUTE until onions are translucent. STIR in garlic, cooking for a minute more. STIR in curry paste and tomatoes. ADD the water. BRING to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes. STIR in the spinach a handful at a time.

  2. When the spinach has wilted and tomatoes have blistered slightly, (add more water by the Tbsp., if pan is to dry) carefully CRACK eggs on top of the mixture. SIMMER over medium/low heat.

  3. COVER and COOK until the egg whites are set.

  4. REMOVE from heat. GARNISH with salt, cilantro and lemon wedges. SERVE with toast, pita or your favorite cooked grains.


  • 6 large EGGS
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 cup red onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. mild curry paste
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup water (more, as needed)
  • 5 oz. spinach
  • salt
  • cilantro and lemon wedges, for garnish


Add cheese or yogurt to balance the heat of a spicier curry paste.


Add grains: toss 1/2 cup or so of cooked grains, such as quinoa or millet, into the tomato mixture. Add a splash of vegetable broth if the tomatoes thicken too much.

Can’t find curry paste? Use curry powder instead. Drop the amount down to 2 to 3 teaspoons. Look for a mild curry powder to help balance the flavor of the tomatoes.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
