Egg Kurma Recipe

Egg Kurma Recipe

I try to make different egg curry if am not making usual egg burji and this is one of those things that I tried which is more of south indian style of egg curry.   This egg kurma is easy to make and taste just too delicious with steamed rice, paratha or any variety rice.  There are many versions of egg kurma/muttai kurma  and this is something similar to chettinad egg curry but with little less spices, a good recipe to make weekend lunch special or even for lunch box.  If you also look for new things to try then you will sure like this aromatic egg kurma.  I didn't click step wise pictures but you if wish you can refer to the chettinad egg curry recipe for that.  So let's just check the recipe ...
