Boiled Egg Kurma Recipe | Restaurant Style Egg Kurma | Egg Side dish for Chappati

Coconut Egg Curry
Egg Kurma Recipe
Egg to us falls under the vegetarian category. Although both husband and me are not big fans for eggs, once in a while I do cook eggs as part of meals. Mostly omelettes and egg fried rice takes dominance, I do make an exception of boiled egg kurma (the below recipe) or kerala egg roast which are equally enjoyed. Boiled Egg Kurma is made with the usual spices blended with coconut and cashew paste that makes this curry thick yet creamy. You can follow the same recipe to make any basic veg or non veg kurma.
