This is a very simple egg curry that you can make in a jiffy and it goes well literally with anything! Am sure most people love eggs and if you don’t or can’t have them due to an allergy, by all means do substitute with tofu or paneer.
I have tried so many variants of making egg curry and I think I like this the best so far, as the gravy is really thick and I am one of those who needs lots of gravy with whatever I have it with…. ha ha.
There is one recipe that I came across on the internet which I liked very much, but I think I would like to modify it (lol). So stay tuned for that…. 😉
