Many of you love to have Eggs . Eggs are powerhouse of nutrition packed with protein and many vitamins and minerals.
My Kids love to have eggs and their favorite dish is Egg curry. I try to make something different each time.
This time I made egg curry (Andhra Style) that is spicy and tangy. It was finger licking good.
