Many people show a weakness for eggs, one of the most common pantry staples, as well as curries, so it is not surprising that they love egg curry. Some like to make their egg curry with the traditionally boiled eggs while others prefer to poach them in a pan with oil. An egg curry, usually but not always cooked with the same spices as meat-based mains, can be a last-minute replacement for other proteins in kitchens across the country or it can be an option to break the monotony of vegetables.
