Anda Methi ~ Egg curry with Fenugreek leaves


An egg curry with hints of methi and a mild masala flavor. Yes, yet another methi based dish. :) I have kept the recipe light, restraining the use of malai aka cream which yields a creamy rich dish. Play around with spices of your choice. Makes for a quick and flavorful side with rice or rotis.

    How much turmeric powder goes in? The description says to add turmeric but I don’t see the amount in the ingredient list. Also, could you add curd instead of water?
