Simple Egg Curry

    My usual egg curry is little lengthy process and the ingredient preparation will also take time...ginger garlic paste,onion paste,tomato puree,masala sauting..this and that..But sometimes my Kids wont allow me to stay in kitchen for longtime...they trouble me a lot :(  In such cases i am forced to do some experiments :) (quick n easy method) and get back to them soon..This egg curry is a result of one such experiments made by me,the result was so good and we liked it very much with mild spices and masala, ready in 15 minutes(with ready boiled eggs)...pairs well with dosa, chapathi, puri and white rice also.

Nutritional Benefits of Egg: Eggs are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.One egg contains 6 grams of high-quality protein and all 9 essential amino acids.Experts advise that despite being low in saturated fat, one should not eat more than two eggs a day on a low-fat diet.Another health benefit of eggs is their contribution to the diet as a source of choline. Choline is definitely a nutrient needed in good supply for good health.
