Mutta Kuzhambu/Egg White Cubes In Tamarind Gravy

  If you dont know how to finish leftover egg whites after making a dessert or cake, am sure this gravy  will definitely helps you to finish them as a fingerlicking dish.Actually after making a cake with eggs and egg yolks,i had some egg whites sitting in my fridge since a day. I planned to finish them in chocolate mousse but somehow i changed my mind and prepared this delicious tamarind gravy aka kuzhambu. This tangy gravy tastes fantabulous with rice and papads, they suits even more delicious with South Indian breakfast dishes like idlies and dosas.

 Many peoples dont eat egg yolks but they love egg whites,some make egg drop like gravy or else hard boiled eggs gravy, for a change make this egg white cubes gravy am sure this will definitely tastes different and completely a new gravy from our usual kuzhambu.Needless to say tangy gravies tastes more delicious after a day, obviously this gravy also tastes fabulous the next day.Sending to Its Potluck LeftoverMagicOver Event ‪#‎itsLeftoverMakeover
