Kodi Guddu Kura | Ande Ki Sabji | Egg in Coconut Gravy

Long back when were moving from guest house to a apartment in Korea, I was too tired to make dinner because of all the shopping to the new home. Then my sweet hubby made me a beautiful dinner that I can never forget. He made few hard boiled eggs and sprinkled them with pepper & salt. Oh.. I just can't forget how yummy they were.. :) Though it is the most easiest thing you can do, but for me it is so precious. 
Coming to the curry the fried boiled eggs are dipped in a tomato coconut gravy along with garam masala powder & topped with cilantro. You can use either hard boiled or poached eggs for this curry.
