Egg is one of the few ingredients that we have in our pantry that has come to our rescue countless number of times. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, all you need are some eggs to whip up a masterpiece. And the best part is, it does not even take that long! Aren't eggs the easiest to cook, and so amazingly versatile?! From omelette to egg curry and to souffle, eggs could be prepared in a gamut of ways. One of our most favourite egg preparations is definitely the egg curry. In many parts of southern India, egg curry is popular as Baida curry and happens to be one crackling affair. Made with a bouquet of spices, tangy tomatoes and herbs, the gravy is so indulgent, it may compel you to get up for a second helping.
