Potato and egg curry

Egg curry is a family favourite as it takes very less time to cook and you can make as ‘mild’ you want or as ‘hot’ according to your taste bud.Eggs are a good source of protein.

The ginger, tomatoes and green chillies provide a fantastic flavor to it and the plus side is if you have the left over curry you can use it on making some other curries like fish or plain potato curry.
