Egg Curry Cooked in Spicy Coconut and Poppy Seeds Paste

Thank God It’s Friday..This is one of my favorite Egg Recipe  which I generally keep for Fridays when I run out of vegetables in my refrigerator. Also, Fridays are meant to be special because you just had an eventful week past by and your weekends are ahead.

It goes so well with anything be it rice, roti , chappati, paratha or even pulao. I like to use fresh grated coconut without skin instead of coconut milk
