Udaitha Muttai Kuzhambu Recipe - Egg Drop Curry Recipe

Muttai Kuzhambu Recipe
Udaitha Muttai Kulambu / Egg Drop Curry / Poached Egg Curry is one of the recipes from ammas collections. The speciality of this recipe is we dont add boiled eggs to the curry as we always do instead we break open and pour the eggs directly into the curry and cook it. I am not a big fan of this curry, I prefer the boiled eggs kuzhambu more but hubbys prefer this.Now lets get on to learn egg kuzhambu recipe...

We had it with podalangai poriyal rice and sutta appalam...my kind of comfort meal it is :)
