Tasty Tuesday: Mom’s Famous Egg Curry Recipe

For as long as I can remember, every single event featured my mom’s egg curry. It was delicious, warm, full of flavour, and quite easy to make for large batches. She boils the eggs in a large batch, cools, then fries each egg. My Mom used to always make the sauce at home by simply boiling tomatoes, peeling them, then purée-ing it into a sauce. Nowadays, she uses a shortcut by using organic pasta sauce. Convenient and easy! I hope you find this simple and filling dish as wonderful as we do.
