Re: Chettinad Egg Drop Curry

I had some eggs fast approaching the expiry date due to all the fasting during chaitra navratri, so thought of trying a new recipe for egg curry. Found this one, a very different one from what we cook at home, so tried it out and it turned out quite good.

Anybody tried Chettinad style cooking? A bit labor intensive but result is good and pure spices used rather than from a packet.

P.S. Eggs were cage free not organic

Oh I love this one. I didn't know it's called egg drop curry though. I make it at home often. I don't put these many spices though.

I do make chettinad style curries/fries but mostly meat based.
I also reduce the chili powder in almost every dish. They call for too much.

Re: Chettinad Egg Drop Curry

Having not cooked with grated coconut, I've learnt now you need to be careful frying it cause it burns way too quickly.

btw, does anybody still eat yolks? I throw it out from boiled eggs and while cooking omelettes I use max one yolk from every 3 eggs.

Throw yolks away But that is the life of the egg (literally). How can you throw the yolks away? What is left then in the egg

Yeah, I know... cholesterol and doctors and health and all. I am just waiting for the next health report that says cholesterol is good for health. Is that out yet? Maybe just a few more years... probably this year itself.
