I was looking were some inspiration. Yeah I do that quite often πŸ˜‰

This huge bunch of fresh coriander, mint and couple of raw mangoes were stuffed in the crisper. Temperature is soars to 45 degrees C :/ and I knew, even in the crisper the coriander will start wilting within a few days. So, making chutney was an option, but what more ??

Here came the spark !! πŸ˜›

The journey and execution of Egg curry with coriander and raw mango !!

    Yummy, the secret ingredient has to be the raw mango. Love egg curry, my Mum used to crack an egg and drop it in the curry sauce, but I’ve seen others use the hard-boiled variety. I’ve got to try this, the gravy looks delicious πŸ™‚
