Kerala Style Egg Curry with Coconut Milk ~ Nadan Mutta Curry

Spicy curry base that is finished with creamy coconut milk to balance out the spiciness is what makes this Kerala Style Egg Curry with Coconut Milk, so special. If you want to make it Vegan and skip the egg, you can just add a few other veggies like potatoes and carrots and it will still be just as good!
