How to Make Egg Curry Masala
Recipe Notes for Egg Butter masala curry recipe
- I skipped adding extra cream in this recipe. To make the makhani gravy richer you can add 2-3 tbsp of cashew paste or cream after switching off the heat.
- While making any egg curry always slit the eggs so the eggs absorb all flavours of makhani gravy.
- I added dry makhani masala for extra taste. If you do not have that you can skip that.
- Do not brown the masala or overcook the masala. Perfect makhani gravy should neither be overcooked nor undercooked.
