Spicy Ground ginger Turmeric Egg curry

Easy Spicy Ground ginger Turmeric Egg curryEasy Spicy Ground ginger Turmeric Egg curry is a Popular egg curry in my family, Tried and tested by many of my relatives. The curry has more of ground ginger and indian spices which adds a spicy hot flavor which is best suitable for winter and rainy season so that the heat of ginger and indian spices gives the warmth the body needs. Prepare this curry in an earthen pot(best opted) or any cooking vessel. Pour the curry in a bread bowl and it seduces you to dive in. Srilankan chicken curry is also suitable for bread bowl. If you do not have a bread bowl, serve with roti or plain toasted bread or plain rice. Another amazing combo is when this curry is paired with Biriyani

Taste of this curry: you will sense the heat of the ground ginger popping abnormally. That is the reason why it is paired with Biriyani to aid in digestion. This curry uses tomatoes to get the mild touch of tanginess. Tamarind or Kokum may not give the same taste which tomatoes add in here.

Festival season has started with Eid being a great time to enjoy non vegetarian dishes. It happens every year that i wait for a grand lunch with Biriyani and a curry and a salad. Its sometimes my favorite season and sometimes not. Don’t know why :(. Always Eid has been a favorite day for me. Nostalgic memories associated which cling on to every now and then.

Festival season have been a revived sense of energy intensifying towards cooking and me getting soaked in kitchen flavors and curry aroma. This recipe was made with a purposeful intention of blogging and a terrific lunch for Eid. That made me create a simple minimal recipe for a sumptuous lunch.

Often Food Blogging makes me a boring person trying to pull out a bowl of rice, sambar and a stir fry if iam not preparing a dish for a blog. I badly wanted to change that feeling on a festival day. Planned a blog post and a grand lunch and that made me revive fresh with great pictures and garnishing and lunch

I can see many of you tired after working like a machine for a boss. I see you tired and hungry. And since it is weekend, your pantry will be almost empty and you will feel tired even to cook your dinner.

This curry – You can do this for sure. Because it is very appetizing

Including an egg in my diet was almost forgotten. Whenever I crave for an egg dish, my pantry says “No Eggs Left”. I turn aggressive and this kept repeating and i almost forgot this great ingredient while shopping

Eid Shopping thankfully reminded me of this mysterious egg and i bought a dozen of them. You give any type of egg dish, i would gulp them in seconds and turn to my hubby’s plate to get a piece from him. Poor man, he gives me a bigger piece. That really tastes even more tastier :). I am not turning romantic here. ???? It’s just enjoying the last egg piece to the core.

This post should have come up a week back so that readers could have prepared for Eid. Blame the Lazy me. Lunch with Lamb Biryani is all the more alluring that I can’t wait to dig in. I can go up to 2 bowls of biryani with this curry, Lamb curry and a salad. This is the Royal Cuisine of India.
