Egg Masala / Muttai Masala

Egg curry is a easy comforting dish and loved by most of us. This is a spicy thick gravy that suits well with rice as well as rotis and pulao items. The main thing in this gravy is you have to cook the onions so soft that when we eat we should not feel the crunchiness of the onions. The touch of  soft onions will give a wonderful taste to this masala. My mom will make this curry with a piece of coconut to make it creamy but I am happy to  go with onions and tomatoes, if you like a creamy texture then add 1/4 cup of grounded coconut to the masala. A small amount  of the gravy will  be enough for a cup of rice. Hope you all love this as we enjoyed with our family. Try it and let me know your thoughts….Smile
