Egg curry/Mutta kuzhambu

Standard

Coming to Egg, my son loves Egg a lot, that to when it comes to boiled egg, he is a big fan for it. So I was hunting for the recipe and later came to know about this recipe through one of my friend who is from Virudhunagar and this egg curry is their (virudhunagar people’s) authentic dish. I have used big onions but they use small onions/shallots for this gravy and this recipe consumes lots of oil.

The taste was delicious and the color of the dish was attractive. Let us move on to the recipe…
