Poached Egg Curry/Mutta Curry/Egg Drop Curry

Its been a while i blogged about a non vegetarian dish in this space, and this poached egg curry is our family favourite. With usual ingredients and flavored with coconut milk, this poached egg curry is definitely a fingerlicking dish. One can have this curry with a bowl of rice or with some rotis. This poached egg curry can be an excellent party friendly dish if you are planning for a Non vegetarian menu plan for your get together. Very easy and simple to make, this curry makes a prefect pair to serve with mildly spiced pulaos, variety rices or else simply with any sort of Indian flatbreads. I just love this curry with hot steaming rice and i usually call this curry as 2 in 1. Yes this curry doesnt need any side dish to serve with.

With egg already in this curry, one can finish their lunch or dinner happily without any fuss. Freshly squeezed coconut milk or tinned coconut milk anything works prefect with this curry. And the flavor of this curry will definitely tickle your tastebuds without any fail. Though we can name this dish either as Kerala style egg curry or Tamilian style egg curry, i simply love this easy breezy curry even with bread slices. However if you dont eat eggs, you can add some colourful vegetables or else some cubed paneer to dish out the same curry in an ease. This curry is going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon as am running with Easy Dinner Dishes as theme.

Egg drop curry is a nice variation to regular egg curry. I don’t make it at all at home as other adult at home is not very fond of it.

I usually add boiled eggs for egg curry but dropping the eggs into the curry would cut down the prep time a bit. Like you said these curries pair well with rice roti or even bread!
