Egg Curry - Version I


Eggs are packed with a range of nutrients including protein, essential vitamins A, D, E, and B group as well as minerals iron, phosphorus and zinc. They’re relatively low in saturated fat, making them a healthy fast food for all the family.They’re low in calories with only around 80 kcals per medium egg – so they are great if you’re on a diet, especially combined with vegetables and salads as part of healthy balanced meals!

Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy. They contain a wealth of vitamins, minerals and protein.

I love eggs and if you eat eggs you may consider yourself to be a vegetarian or non vegetarian..here is one version of the egg curry which i generally make. the gravy is little sweet and goes well with kids, my 15 month old daughter likes it a lot..you can adjust spices and make this gravy spicy as per your taste..The same gravy also works well with paneer dishes.
