Nadan Mutta Curry/Kerala Egg Curry With Coconut Milk

Kerala curries are definitely my favourite as they are very mild in spiciness and cooked usually with coconut milk. Eggs are very healthy and they are good source of high quality protein.People often think that protein is only found in the egg whites. But trust me the egg yolks are known to be have almost all the nutrients and fats in it. However, in addition to these nutrients, the yolk also contains up to about half of the protein content of the egg. A large egg contains about 7 grams of protein, and the 3 grams will be coming from the yolk and 4 grams from the white.Therefore, eating the entire egg, not just the white, is the way to get the most protein and nutrients. Do you know eating raw eggs will provide least amount of proteins. Many researches and studies says that cooking eggs helps the proteins to be more easy to digest and more accessible to the body. Eggs are low in calorie hence many sprotsmen enjoy eggs daily as a part of their meal and many survives just with a couple of hard boiled eggs if they are following a strict diet. Needless to say eggs are weight loss friendly, eating eggs for breakfast may help to reduce the number of calories you consume for next 24 hours.
