Poached Egg Curry -North Indian Style

Poached Egg Curry

I  was alone at home bored and started going through my old recipe notes  and found  north indian style egg masala recipe scribbled in my book.I don't actually remember from where i had taken the recipe from.When
i went through the recipe i felt modifying  the recipe would yield much better result. So i thought to give a try and also instead of using boiled eggs i went for poached eggs. This egg curry is loaded with spices and one may feel lot of masala. If you don't like more spice you may adjust spices accordingly. This Egg Curry goes well with steamed rice,jeera rice, roti and paratha.I prepared this curry for lunch and served with steamed rice within few minutes plates were cleaned.Should i need to say how it tasted.................LOL :)
