Not in the mood for something really simple to eat and in no mood whatsoever of slogging in the kitchen for some elaborate meat dish. So what does one do? EGGS ! You can jazz these up and make it exotic. But most of the egg curry dishes I had in my recipe books, needed coconut in some form or the other. Well I dint have any at home. So I figured, if I searched for cuisines up north in Asia, I would get people cooking curries, without easy access to coconut.:) And this is where I stumbled upon a few Pakistani egg curry recipes. This egg curry recipe is nice and simple and it ended up tasting awesome too. We had it with some soft bread and then again with rice and we were done. All satisfied! Let me share this one with you. Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
