Egg White Cubes & Vegetable Kurma/ Mutta Kaaikari Kurma

Kurma is an aromatic flavourful curry which can be prepared with meats or vegetables or else with both meats and vegetables.Kurma is definitely a gourmet gravy as this curry is prepared with couple of spices and coconut cream. Kurma is our favourite curry as this dish can be served along with any sort of flavoured rice or simply with cooked basmati rice or else with rotis or naans. Obviously Kurma is a fabulous gravy to serve with any sort of the dish. I have already dished out couple of varieties of kurma but still some variety of kurmas are yet to cook and post in my space. One among those kurmas is this Egg white cubes kurma with couple of vegetables. Usually whole boiled eggs are used in kurma hence this kurma is definitely a different dish from the usual egg kurma.

This blog was in hibernation for a while, and am kick starting this week of blogging marathon with One ingredient 3 ways as theme. And i picked Egg as my main ingredient. Egg is a good source of protein and egg is a must for us. My fridge will always have eggs hence i do varieties of foods with this protein rich eggs. Coming to this Egg white cubes kurma, this dish calls for bit time consuming preparations, this kurma is definitely a must to try if you want to cook with eggs in a different way. We enjoyed this kurma for our sunday lunch with a simple Jeera pulao, both together works awesome and we had a fabulous lunch with. I love to cook kurma with vegetables like drumsticks, jackfruit seeds, potatoes etc, obviously i couldnt think more than adding those vegetables in this gravy. A flavourful curry to make without any fail.

Egg White Cubes is a creative way to hide eggs secretly in a Kurma, so that kids don't find out. Kurma looks super yum!

The egg white cubes look like paneer slices. The kurma looks so good and would be a perfect side for parotta too.

I love eggs in gravies, give me this platter Priya, you made me hungry to make it now. with roti or rice they would be perfect treat to tastebuds.

The masala ingredients in the gravy sounds very flavorful. I am sure paneer can be used instead of the eggs for vegetarians.

My kids don't like egg yolk. This is a wonderful recipe using egg white only. I'm sure my daughter will love this one. Will try soon

I didn't know that there are egg cubes and the addition of eggs must add extra nutrition to the veg kurma.

Sandhya Ramakrishnan said...

The egg white cubes look just like paneer. I wish my husband ate eggs, so I can try all the delicious egg curries.
