Fennel Flavored Egg Curry & Nimmakaya Charu - T&T from Sailu's Kitchen

Egg curry and nimmakaya charu was our yesterday lunch, both dishes tastes marvellous..I have bookmarked this both recipes quite a long back at Sailu's Kitchen and i wanted to try them sterday coz i was quite busy and also i went a bit late to kitchen, this both dishes doesnt need loads of ingredients to cook up and the result was completely tremendous..Very quick to prepare and the nimmakaya charu suits prefectly as simple soup which goes awesome for both dinner or lunch while its cold, yeah either u can have them directly as soup or else can serve along with hot steaming rice..Coming to the egg curry, its one the easiest and flavorful curry i have ever prepared, this egg curry goes awesome with rice as well as with rotis or parathas, i prepared this egg curry bit thick to serve as side dish along with nimmakaya charu, both together works out wonder and we enjoyed having this both dishes..Thanks to Sailu for sharing these wonderful dishes with us..I enjoyed cooking her fabulous dishes...
