Egg Curry Recipe | Spicy Egg Curry | Capsicum Egg Curry

Egg Curry Recipe
Today's recipe is a spicy Egg Curry that is prepared using freshly ground spices & tomato puree. The preparation process may look difficult and time consuming but actually you can make this curry in a jiffy. Last Week, I prepared this Egg Curry for our Dinner. At home, kids were sick and I wanted to make something spicy for them and this Egg Curry using freshly ground spices came to my mind. Also, i wanted to share this recipe here, so without any second thought prepared and clicked it. I served this Egg Curry with Jeera Rice for kids and I had it with rotis. Egg Curry pairs well with both rice & rotis.
