Egg Curry (Egg Gravy using coconut milk)

Egg is my(our) favourite and it has been our life saver during our hectic days. I tried this egg curry long back and have been making it often. I like to try different and new egg recipes and this one fitted my craving perfectly. I've posted this chettinad egg gravy long back and have got good feedback for it.

Many of my friends even asked whether sharmis passions is a vegetarian space, I want to make it clear here.....the main reason for not posting nveg dishes is that I dont cook nveg though I eat ;) For the lame excuse I cant make this space starve so sure to post nveg dishes hereafter from ammas kitchen :)

Egg Curry Recipe

I recently got a book by Mallika badrinath specially for eggs. Though I've tried few dishes from there, I didnt find time to click them. So more egg recipes to follow this space soon, keep watching.

I like my gravy/curry to be thick and now u know the main reason for me to like this gravy :) You can make this curry even more thicker if you like.

My Notes:
I just reduced the cumin and pepper by 1/2 tsp as I wanted a less spicy curry. Adjust as per your liking.
You can add eggs a little before serving time too. Just heat the curry and add the eggs when serving as the egg easily absorbs the curry so try to serve a little after you switch off.
