Egg Curry in Green Tomato Gravy

Egg curry in green tomato gravy

I did a little experiment in my kitchen. Made egg curry and instead of ripe red tomatoes, I added unripe or green tomatoes. The result was fantastic. 

Egg curry is one of the most easiest recipe which I like to cook when I get no time for cooking.  Sometimes when I have nothing else to cook for dinner, I make egg curry. Basically I add potatoes in egg curries and sometimes I like to add okra in the curry. I don't really remember when I cooked egg curry for the first time but my mother  often used to cook egg curry when I was a kid. I enjoyed my mother's egg curries a lot but my kids don't enjoy eating egg curry.  So I don't often cook egg curries. I cook egg curry for my husband and me. My kids love boiled eggs only.  But my son enjoys the gravy.

So the other day I made egg curry in green tomato gravy. I had two green tomatoes left in my refrigerator. These were the same green tomatoes I received from my dad and from which I made Green tomato pickle. Well those green tomato pickle is ready to serve now.  Without further delay let's jump to the recipe now.
