Egg Gravy - Egg Curry Recipe - Chettinad Style

Egg Gravy
I got this egg gravy recipe from a TV show, and it came out exactly the same taste as in restaurants. It already has more pepper in the grinded paste, so the chilli could be reduced a bit, it can be adjusted according to ones taste. Here goes the gravy recipe.
