Here is a simple and delicious egg omelette curry recipe. I usually prepare boiled egg curries when I have to make a quick lunch as there is no need to prepare any other side dish when serving it with rice.
With eggs being so versatile, I wanted to try making a curry with omelette instead of just boiled eggs. This dish turned out delicious with the curry sauce complementing the omelettes.
With just a few basic spices, this curry is easy to prepare and tastes good with both rice and rotis. Its also a good way to include protein-rich eggs in a curry.
