Hi Kavitha,

I have to try this recipe. I haven't tasted Egg Kurma so far. Mostly, Chicken & Mutton at my local eateries.

Another thing, I would like to invite you to join Foodbuzz community. As you didn't leave your email in your blog, I can't send the invitation but you can find out more info about it in my blog's link. Since you're living in US, you should join this Foodbuzz community.
