Egg Molly

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 to it. Be it a curry, sandwich, snack, dessert…

Egg Molly 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..

Here is the recipe…

You can make the gravy in advance and store it in the refrigerator. It's better to do the egg preparation, just before serving. You can cook the egg according to your taste preferences – easy, over easy, medium done…
