Egg Masala Curry Recipe – Spicy Egg Curry (Anda Curry) Recipe

 

Before moving to India, I have never seen or tasted egg curry. Not even in Indian restaurants.
One day, my husband cooked Maharashtrian Anda curry for me (he is also a big fan of eggs) and ever since, I have tried lots of different recipes, until I adapted on my own taste.

I love egg curries. Fast to cook, healthy ingredients, a simple pleasure for lunch or dinner. You can use few ingredients or more sophisticated recipes which involve more ingredients, however you choose, egg goes fantastically well in curry.

Also, egg curry is a kids friendly recipe, my daughter loves it and I enjoy seeing her eating something healthy.

Hope you try this recipe and let me know how it turns out!
