Egg Korma With Almonds And Coconut Milk 


Egg korma with almonds and coconut milk.

A very delicious and rich egg curry with thick and creamy gravy. If you don’t like eggs you can make this gravy with any vegetables or kofta or vegetable balls.

I love to try different egg recipes. I have already shared some in this blog earlier.

Eggs are a well known rich source of protein — an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. The body uses protein to build and repair tissues as well as making enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals. Unfortunately, unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein, and therefore has no reservoir to draw on when it needs a new supply. Thus eggs are the perfect sources and a smart food choice for those who reduce their intake of carbohydrates in a bit to lose excess weight.

Our this week’s 86th #Foodiemonday bloghop theme is coconut milk. And my contribution is this egg korma with almond and coconut milk.

Coconut milk and almond gives the gravy creamy texture.

Coconut milk is highly nutritious and an excellent source of vitamins, fibre and minerals.

This egg korma is very easy to cook and super delicious. It goes well with rice and bread both.

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
