Egg masala

Egg masala is a semi dry mild masala curry. One of my all time favorite dish. For a cold or rainy weather, it is an awesome combination with rice and chappathi. An easy recipe to make in few mins.

Garlic goes with eggs very well and gives a nice aroma.

This recipe seems spicy but it is absolutely a mild spice one. This is a recipe which I make whenever I feel out of mood to cook.
