Chettinad style Egg curry/kuzhambu

Its so difficult to wake up on weekends and to cook don't even ask.Thats when i thought of making this curry and my ghee rice with some ready made coconut milk powder.What a breeze of a lunch it was!



I saw this recipe at Jay's Tasty Appetite and i immediately wanted to try it out.The most difficult part in this meal would have been to squeeze some fresh coconut milk but since i used ready made powdered coconut milk it was simple.

Hard boiled eggs 3
Baby onions 10 nos
Tomato 1 small
Tamarind 1 small lime sized ball
Coriander/dhaniya powder 1 tsp
