Poached Egg Curry - South Indian Style | Udaitha Muttai Kulambu

Poached Egg curry is one of my favourite recipe. We also call it in Tamil as Udaitha Muttai Kulambu. This is my mom's signature dish. We used to prepare this gravy/curry at-least once in a week. This tastes best with Chappathi, Rotis, Phulkas Appam and Dosas.
