I tried this egg curry on a lazy day when it was lunch only for me and hubby.

Serve hot with rice / phulka.

My Notes:

  • This curry is spicy so adjust spice level according to your preference.
  • This serves best with phulkas and rice but I had with idli for dinner and it was a good combo too.
  • If you want it little tangy add a tomato while sauteing onions.
