Anda Tarkari ( Odisha style Egg curry)


Egg Curry is one of my favorites right from the childhood days. Since half of the family members were vegetarian by choice, egg used to be the most preferred non-veg ingredient unless we had guests coming over. And after I got married, I discovered that it is not only tasty but also easy to prepare. Luckily, I was able to convince my hard-core non-vegetarian husband into trying it out. But not without it's share of drama. But all's well that ends well. My efforts paid off for now he is a fan of the humble yet flavorsome Egg curry.
