Quail Egg Curry Recipe - Kaada Mutta Curry Recipe

This is a simplest egg curry. I normally use regular eggs in this, but this time i decided to use quail eggs and it was delicious. It has a base of simple onions and tomatoes and can be made in few mins. It can be made in a jiffy and taste great with either rice or roti. So good.
