Sour egg curry

Eggs are indeed my all time favourites and to experiment with eggs as I love having egg curries frequently owing to its ease of cooking, I like the most.

There are several ways of cooking an egg curry. If you like tikha some day, try dim kosha and if you want to have a khatta egg curry just for change, try this recipe of mine. I’m sure you will love it.

Method for 3 people:

1. Boil 3 eggs and de-shell and fry the boiled eggs till they turn a bit red on all sides
