Muttai Kuruma Recipe | Boiled Egg Kuruma | Egg Korma

Eggs are like saviors in every kitchen, they can rescue us anytime from the nothing-to-cook-scenario. There are so many ways to cook eggs and that's the best reason I love working with them, I'd call it an all rounder.  Here's a khuruma recipe with boiled eggs that makes a very good curry or side-dish for spongy Dosa, pillow soft idli, rice and even rotis.
