Saucy Egg Kurma In a Rich Cashew Coconut Base

😉  😉  😉  😉

Eggs always make me smile; They always make me want them; In fact boiled egg is my staple food; I have it everyday. If i don see Mr.Egg in my plate for 2 days, then I start missing him. Mr Egg makes my meal complete, perfect & pleasant.

Egg in any form is acceptable for me. But, I love Them in their boiled form.

I’m making my 7 month old also a li’l egg eater like me. Since he’s 6 months, I started out with boiled yolk.  Hubby is ok-with-egg’ kinds. He isn’t nuts over eggs.

I was wondering out what to make out of egg, for lunch, than those regular-home-recipes. I stumbled upon this recipe at divya’s place . I took the recipe as it is. No tweaking. But the ingredients were as usual, eye-ball-measured.
