Udaitha Muttai Kuzhambu Recipe - Egg Drop Curry Recipe

Muttai Kuzhambu Recipe
Udaitha Muttai Kulambu / Egg Drop Curry / Poached Egg Curry is one of the recipes from ammas collections. The speciality of this recipe is we dont add boiled eggs to the curry as we always do instead we break open and pour the eggs directly into the curry and cook it. I am not a big fan of this curry, I prefer the boiled eggs kuzhambu more but hubbys prefer this.Now lets get on to learn egg kuzhambu recipe...

We had it with podalangai poriyal rice and sutta kind of comfort meal it is :)

    Muttai Kulambu - Step4
Serve hot with rice!

My Notes:

  • Dont stir the curry once the eggs are added.
  • You can use the same recipe and add boiled eggs instead of adding the raw eggs directly into the curry.
  • Instead of ginger garlic paste you can even add crushed ginger and garlic.
  • The tamarind water should be runny, dont use thick tamarind pulp which will give a more tangy flavour to the curry.
  • While tempering you can temper whole spices like cinnamon,cloves and cardamom.
