Indian Egg Curry

Indian Egg Curry is a simple and easy main course/entree that pleases adults to youngsters.

Egg Curry

It is made using very basic ingredients & Indian spices.

Traditional egg curry calls for the boiled eggs to be lightly sauteed with oil however that makes the whole recipe very heavy on our tummy.

So I’m using plain boiled eggs in curry but I’m boiling them with the curry for a couple of minutes.

It’s also a great recipe for lot of people who follow a non-meat diet but can eat eggs as it’s rich in Proteins.
