Egg curry is muttai kulambu in Tamil. This can be made in so many different ways but this is my favourite recipe and I always follow this for my egg curry. I make with usual spice mix that is available in our pantry but adding 1 tablespoon of egg curry masala which is store bought will give extra flavourful to the dish. Some people prefer to add tamarind in this recipe but I always prepare without tamarind. We can add boiled eggs or egg drop method with this curry.
If you prefer extra flavour in your egg then halve them and shallow fry with little turmeric, chilli powder and salt and then drop the eggs in the curry. I feel the whole boiled eggs gives bland taste. This can be served with steam rice, idly, dosa or chapathi. I made this few days ago along with chicken drumstick curry and the combination was so good.
Recipe in short:
Spicy egg curry with onion, tomato, spice mix and coconut.
Coconut gives thickness and good texture to the curry. You can even replace coconut with coconut milk.
