Egg curry with Coconut Milk

Egg curry with Coconut Milk

Konaseema is one of the most beautiful place in East Godavari of Andhra State. Paddy fields, Mango groves, Clumps of Coconut tress, greenery everywhere and not but not least tasty food. In East Godavari, we have lots of coconut trees and use coconut a lot in making curries, fries and sweets. We make paste out of coconut, cashews, poppy seeds and use this paste in making Non-vegetarian curries and in vegetarian masala curries to give rich taste and sprinkle coconut in fry recipes. We use fresh or dry coconut directly than using coconut milk. According to my knowledge, along with fresh coconut, coconut milk is also used mostly in Malayali cuisine and coconut milk in some Asian countries in making curries and soups. But due to food globalization, we all started adopting food habits of other regions and countries and giving local food a new twist. Coconut milk got fame and everyone started using it in many ways in their food to give a mark to their recipes with rich taste. 

Today's recipe is Egg curry using coconut milk. I love my Mom's egg curry using milk. I made a slight change and added coconut milk instead of milk.
