Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch dice
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 hard-cooked eggs, cut into wedges (see Tip)

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until the onions begin to color, about 5 minutes. Add jalapeño and ginger; stir for 1 minute. Stir in flour, curry powder and cumin and cook for 1 minute. Gradually whisk in broth; cook, stirring, until smooth and thickened, about 1 minute.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in yogurt, 1 1/2 tablespoons of the parsley and lemon juice. Stir eggs into the sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon parsley and serve.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and run a constant stream of cold water over the eggs until completely cooled.
