Extra virgin olive oil is only used as a dressing for salads and dips. Only plain olive oil is used for cooking and sauting.

No Bengali, in their right mind will put all these spices in Egg curry. Only things you need here is onion, garlic, red chilli powder, pinch of sugar and salt to taste. And ofcourse oil to cook. Tomato in egg curry is a complete NO. It spoils the flavor of egg. And for egg curry, you should choose duck egg instead of chicken.
