I love eggs in any form. They are one of the versatile ingredients to have around because you can whip up anything during any time of the day. I make curries with it often to go along with roti or appam or whatever..The curries made with eggs pair great with these. You can check out my curry making history here and all the egg recipes posted in yummy tummy here.
This recipe is quite different from the normal curry, because it has a very intense spicy flavour to it from the freshly ground masala. I served this spicy curry with roti and i had some leftover the next day which i served with aapam. I should admit that the curry tasted way better the next day when reheated, the flavours got meld together beautifully. I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
