Eggs, being the amazing source of proteins can be twisted to make many more delectable delights. One such scrumptious dish is that 
GINGER-PEP EGG CURRY where pressure-cooked eggs are just simmered in spicy flavored gravy. It has a mild tangy taste of tomato coupled with the aromatic flavors of masala spices and especially specific ginger-roots that are fried along with coconut contents. The highlight of this egg curry is that the Ginger imparts a fantastic flavor to the Curry.

We can have it as a delicious accompaniment to dosas,  chappatis, Rotis, Pooris, One-pot meals and Briyanis.

Easy to make.
Just give a try.
