I am always looking for new versions of Egg Curry . This one is from ” The Spice Routes” by Chris and Carolyn Caldicott .
Some of my favourite recipes come from Chris and Carolyn Caldicott whose books combine informative travelogue and evocative photography with (mostly) vegetarian recipes discovered on their trips. I’m starting with their recipes from Zanzibar, a destination i hope to visit next year if circumstances permit! These are from ” The Spice Routes” published in 2001. I’m starting with a local curry powder which you will need for Zanzibar Egg Curry and which can also be used for vegetable dishes.

Prawn Palava is a fish stew with greens from West Africa and is one of the favourite dishes in the region. This version comes from Sierra Leone. The chipotle chilli flakes give it a slightly smoky flavour, but alternatively you could use a small piece of smoked fish.
