Egg coconut milk curry – Muttai thengapaal curry – Muttai sodhi

This coconut milk-based curry is mild in spices and spiciness. It goes well with rice, appam and idiyappam. I prepared it along with Rice and spicy beans stir fry. Any spicy side dish will go with this curry and rice. Sodhi is a popular dish in our place and we can say this curry is the eggetarian version of Sodhi. I have posted the recipe of ginger chutney/inji thogayal. This chutney goes well with this egg coconut milk curry too.
