Hello!!! Today I am sharing a very simple egg curry recipe from the southern part of India . My boys love the egg recipes and this one of their favorite. Egg are a great source of protein and good for health when eaten in moderation. For people who don’t eat eggs can replace it with potatoes or Paneer. I bet you will love this yummy recipe to the core.
