Udaitha Muttai Kuzhumbu/Egg Poached in curry/Egg Drop Kuzhumbu 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. It can be serve with anything like white rice, idly, dosa and chapatti.

2.  Once onions cooked, add in tomato puree with red chilly, turmeric, coriander powders and salt. Cook it till raw smell leaves. In mean time, take ingredients to grind. Grind them to smooth adding little water.
