Kerala style egg curry – Egg roast paleo recipe (Kerala mutta roast)

 

I simply love the flavor of this herb – curry leaf, I could use it in any Indian dish.
If you are not familiar with curry leaf, well it’s an edible herb with an aromatic taste, similar to lemon grass or asafetida. It is regularly used in Indian dishes, as much as we Westerners are using bay leaf or basil.

Oh and curry leaf is not curry powder. It doesn’t taste like curry powder, and curry leaves are not even an ingredient in curry powder.

In my country, I only saw dried curry leaves and never fresh ones. But I find that dried curry leaves are less pungent than the fresh ones.

This Kerala egg curry delicacy that I’m sharing today has a divine taste. Curry leaves, coconut oil, thick tomatoes gravy, onions, garlic, ginger, eggs and spices…not only it’s healthy but also very easy and quick to make and a fulfilling dish to serve with rice or bread, for lunch or dinner. A kid’s friendly and healthy recipe that even the most fussy little one will love it.

Fresh curry leaves are not easily available in Western markets, you can find them at your local Indian market or you can buy online on amazonIf you can’t easily find fresh curry leaves, than dried curry leaves will do too, just that you will have to add a bit more for a stronger taste.
