Egg Curry

Egg curry is one of the most loved dish at my home. Egg curries always taste good whether it may be of Andhra style, Kerala Style, Punjabi or Bengali cuisine. But I like Mangalorean Style Egg curry a lot with the blend of coconut milk and various other spices. This egg curry goes well specially with the red parboiled rice. This can also be served along with dosa, roti’s, chapathi, Phulka etc.
