Another name for this curry is Nadan Mutta curry. The recipe of kerala egg curry I am sharing with you is hotel style Kerala egg curry (restaurant style). In kerala they serve it msotly with Rice, Malabar parotta, Idiyappam, and appam. My Husband and son love it with South Indian Paratha (layered flatbread). But my favorite meal with the egg curry is always a comforting bowl of egg curry and rice. Here are my 5 Best Egg Curry Recipes.
As we love all sorts of egg curries, I make egg curries in many different ways. I make both versions of Kerala egg curry. You can make gravy egg curry or dry egg curry, both ways it tastes great. Dry Kerala egg curry is more known as Kerala egg roast or Kerala Mutta roast. Here is my Kerala Egg Roast recipe.
Another curry with coconut gravy base is Kolhapuri egg curry. But taste wise and flavor wise it tastes absolutely different. Kerala egg curry is a perfect balance of aromatic spices, whereas Kolhapuri egg curry is spicy and high on heat from chilies. We love them both.
