Hello Friends!! Good day!! Sometime back Narsi’s colleagues told him, “hey i have heard your wife has a food website, so you have good cook-er at home? He said ” Cook”er “???? yeah she cooks well”. So, i have been tagged as a “cook-er” has food website Lol Hehe 🙂 🙂 Most of the times it take more time to decide a menu more than cooking time!! Usually i always ask Narsi to tell the menu he wants to eat so the decision part would be easy!! but hubby dear is always open to my choice and prefer eating whatever easy for me to cook that time!! so whenever there is a confusion Egg is my saviour all time! 🙂 i made few rotis so i thought i will make something a spicy gravy normal than the usual one. so i decided to make Chettinad Egg masala which is little spicy, aromatic and flavourful gravy, which can be served with Rice as well!!
