Egg Kurma is very typical recipe which is prepared focusing on amateurs in cooking. It goes well with both Rice and Roti. Spices are adding flavour and taste to this recipe and it won’t allow people to say NO to this recipe. It can also be prepared using curd/yogurt instead of coconut. But i don’t like to mix both egg and curd/yogurt in a single gravy and so added coconut.
