It is so simple to make and is extremely delicious. You can have the spicy egg curry with rice or roti (traditional Indian bread). It has very simple flavors and simple spices and is extremely nutritious. People who are eggetarians, like me, will love the Spicy Egg Curry. Since we use boiled eggs in this recipe, it gives off very little smell. Make sure you do not over boil the eggs. Otherwise, they turn grey. One tip that I learned from my friend is that, as soon as the eggs are cooked, place them in cold water. This stops the egg whites from turning grey. Here is the recipe for easy and simple Indian dish – Spicy Egg Curry.
