Keto Egg Masala
Eggs are vegetarian!
If you have been following HK for a while you know about my frustrations with Indian viewers constantly asking me for ‘eggless’ recipes. Now don’t get me wrong, I have no issue with anyone not wanting to eat eggs, not liking eggs or anything of that sort. My issue lies with the premise of being an Indian ‘pure veg’. Without getting too deep into this, it comes from the horrible Hindu caste system where Brahmins who don’t eat eggs and meat are seen as ‘pure’ and everyone else is ‘non veg’, yep that’s actually a term used in India. I also take issue with people not even knowing how eggs are produced and being unaware that they are not fertilized and hence, vegetarian. Anyway, before I go deep down the rabbit hole let’s talk about today’s recipe.
It’s an Anda Masala that I’m cooking up today. Anda is the Hindi word for egg and this is one egg-celent dish. It’s boil eggs cooked in a spiced butter and then cooked further in a gravy of onions and tomatoes. Yes, you can eat onions and tomatoes on Keto and if you have a problem with that please watch my video ‘What foods can I eat on Keto’. Anyway, enough jibber jabber and lettuce cook.
Counting carbs & a serving
If you watched the video, you saw 7 eggs. The recipe shows 6 eggs. The reason I did this was because this recipe makes 3 servings which means 2 eggs per person. Imagine dividing 7 eggs into 3 servings, it’s just painful maths. I’ve just simplified it. You can easily up the fat as well by just adding butter on top of your portion and if you wish to reduce carbs just use less onions and tomato. I personally think at 5g carbs for a serving isn’t bad at all. So it’s your call.
While cooking this you can add more water to it to making it more of a ‘curry’. You can blend the masala to make a smoother paste. You can add some cream to this for a richer curry. I think there are plenty of tweaks you can make to this recipe to take it up a notch. I wanted to keep it simple and authentic. Anyway, enjoy!

I like ur videos..and follow them regularly. In the video i can see few plastic bottles behind , u do influence a lot of people, pls try to use steel/glass bottle.. A small request from ur viewer
I like your recipes, presentation, and no-nonsence approach.
And you’re the ONLY keto presenter who is a COOK.
Wow! You had to bring up the caste system didn’t you? No religion is perfect. Neither is yours. The “horrible” Islam religion has as many faults as any others. You want me to start talking about how Islam treats women?
For your information the reason people prefer no eggs is because eggs whether “vegetarian” or not come from farms where chickens are abused and treated horribly. Avoiding eggs is an act of compassion.
I was a regular watcher of your videos until now. Not only will I start avoiding your videos I will be posting your “Horrible Hindu caste” comment on as many blogs as possible. Don’t bother deleting this post. I already have a screenshot.
You know that I am a Hindu right? And you are aware that MILK is as much a torture process as eggs is right? SO your argument holds no water. And you can post whatever you want it’s a free world. The Hindu caste system is horrible and nothing can change that. It’s a cancer to the religion itself. Either way I’m an atheist so I really don’t care about ANY religion.
And tell me why does your compassion not extend to your fellow humans? You think having a caste system and treating people like untouchables is compassion? You want to show compassion to chickens but you will abuse the cow and keep her pregnant and in a state to give you milk but a chicken laying an egg is cruelty? Do you realize how ignorant you sound? And I don’t need to delete you comment because I can hold my own in a discussion.
Late to the party. Came to say that this recipe is ace! Had to reply to this comment. As a Muslim woman I’m treated extremely well actually. Don’t talk about religions or cultures to which you don’t know anything about. The only way to know about a religion or culture is to be submersed in said religion or culture. Sahil is of the culture and religion to which he is referring therefore he can speak his mind. I hope in the recent months since you have posted your comment you have grown up a little bit. Have a blessed Ramadan. And thanks Sahil you’re amazing. I’ve pre-ordered your book off Amazon. Can’t wait until it comes in September!!!
I am sorry but that does the treatment of women have to do with cooking Keto Indian/Pakistani dishes or any dishes at all. Please leave out how I am treated or not. Please stop.
What an absolute idiot.
Please do not bring religion when you are doing a cooking video. It is also not right to generalize a particular set of individuals based on some random comment by someone. Restrict your jibber jabber to cooking only. We love your style of talking but please don’t let it go disarray. Can we say something bad about your Sindhi community based on your biased/prejudiced statement about someone/something?
You can absolutely say whatever you want. I have no affection towards it. Also you missed my point completely. If there is something bad in anything, be it a religion or a community, that is a bad point. Your religion and community can be updated. I am atheist and I do not believe in god but I don’t god to know that something is wrong and not good. Whatever I speak is the truth, sometimes it hurts. If people kept their religion away from me I would not talk about it. Hope you understand my point right? I didn’t say Hinduism is horrible, I just pointed out what is wrong. Are you trying to tell me the caste system is correct? If you think that way then don’t come to my website ever because I would rather not help people who think like this.
Your channel is here only because of your viewers. If you are so much ‘frustrated’ with your Indian viewers, then put a disclaimer that Indians are not allowed to subscribe. You and your mouth and your ‘fighting’ attitude!
It’s a free world. I will never stop anyone from subscribing. Unlike you I don’t discriminate against people based on their ethnicity. I have many Indian subscribers who have no issues with my opinions. So far I can count you and 1 other person who have problems and you are free to do whatever you want. I will always fight for what is right and to remove ignorance from people. But I cannot force you to be less ignorant and more compassionate and understanding. So you do what you want and I will do what I want.
I have some new found respect for you! Not just the recipes, but also your thinking! I really appreciate how you are taking a stand on your beliefs. Hats off to ya! 🙂
Thank you Stefy.
Love the recipe, its a life saver 🙂 Keep them coming please and you are a legend
Please, please start selling a line of herbs for us stupid (me, too ) Americans who only add salt, garlic and pepper to cook. I love your videos and believe India has the healthiest dishes in the world! Thanks. Dee
Thank you so much! 🙂
Wow I see this reference all the time but I have the hardest time with this. ( yes I’m American) I use so many so many spices from all over the world in my dishes . I love spices so much! Seasoning makes the dish and can change the same dish into a unique experience everytime! My suggestion take a bland food like egg and add one seasoning to each bite and taste the flavor. Pick your favorites and mix them. See what you get. It’s like entering a new world with each bite!
Amazing recipe! I tried your Keto bread for the first time and it turned out perfect! Catered to my yearnings for bread, while on this Keto journey! Many thanks Sahil!
And……never mind the negative comments…..individuals who don’t like your comments or, recipes don’t need to be on this site! There’s many other sites they can use! Let’s be a compassionate and respectful society, where each of us are entitled to our own opinions…..and, let’s not suppress other individuals due to our personal beliefs!
Wow! Great recipe! Thanks.
I’m amazed people are jumping on you about the weirdest things! I guess they are bored.
I guess I shouldn’t be amazed by this. Acknowledging a fact doesn’t create a fact. But trying to deny or hide one does. Those who desire change must speak up. And even if you don’t desire change you should have the freedom to express your thoughts freely. Everyone has their own opinion. And if someone doesn’t like a stereotype don’t be it! But when someone tells you one exists listen. A stereotype is created when an opinion becomes wide-spread. Ask yourself what is causing this opinion. Change the cause not the speech. A fact is a fact so deal with it.
Sexism, castism, racism, religious bigotry, and abuse of power does exist. Deal with it. Denial gets you no where different. And only the perpetrators have reason to deny the truth. Don’t step on the tears of the victims and be angry when your feet get wet. The people of the world need to take off thier blindfolds and stop stumbling in their own created darkness.
But whatever.. Let’s eat!
Just to show you how racism works when I looked at this recipe it had an ad for Aladdin on it. I made the gravy and scrambled the eggs into if it looked terrible but tasted amazing. Keep up the good work and don’t let the bastards grins you down. Grind on metal brother!
OMG, This was delicious! Love you spirit and attitude. These people with negative comments are just small minded.
I got everyone in my family watching you.
SO delicious! I’ve always made the HK Egg Curry, which is brilliant in its own way and quicker, perfect for a weeknight meal, but if you have the time, I definitely recommend this Egg Masala. The flavour is richer, I love the rustic “sauce”, and adding cream to it increases the fat content and makes it almost like a butter chicken (thanks Kasuri methi!) , but with eggs instead. YUM!
late to the party–trying keto for the first time and after my husband hard boiled an inordinate amount of eggs (why?) I started looking for a recipe for egg curry, love it and never made it, thank you for this, prepping ingredients now. I do love the style of your posts, don’t change. I’m brahmin and I say preach it, it’s true.
