Motte Saaru (Egg Curry)

Rendition: Here’s one lip-smacking dish for all the eggitarians! This dish reminds me of childhood where mom would make this dish and we’d get all excited! The spicy curry mixed with eggs still makes my mouth water! What’s better is it’s simple and easy to make! The curry goes with practically everything! Roti, rice, ragi balls, dosa, etc. Finger lick away!
