I may have told you many times before as well, Eggs are my “go-to” when I'm in doubt. It's something I stock up and it's like a no fussy ingredient. You can add it into almost anything and it easily adapts into it. Be it a curry, sandwich, snack, dessert…
This is a very much Kerala Style Egg Curry that goes well with Appam, Idiyappam, even Puttu. It's like a spicy stew, but the flavors are not overpowering. The main difference is instead of using boiled eggs, here we are going for ‘sunny side up” ;)
Hope you get to try this and like it too..
