Egg Kurma | Egg Curry with coconut Masala | Egg Curry

Egg Kurma , an easy to make mild and flavorful egg curry with coconut masala. This Egg kurma is my recent favorite curry to have with any pulao or ghee rice and i simply love the intense coconut flavor of the curry.  As i grew up eating a  lot of coconut based dishes, i'm more fond of it and prefer it more than onion & tomato based curries. Now you know why i have some many coconut based dishes in my blog. 

Now coming to today's recipe, it's very mild and can be prepared in 20 mins if you have hard boiled eggs in hand and it goes well with both rice and roti, personally i like it better with rice over roti. Let's check out on how to make this delicious egg kurma.
