Dearest Readers,Today I have come to you with a recipe from my mums kitchen! I know everyone thinks their mum is the greatest cook on Earth. I am sorry to have to break it to you, but my mum is the number #1 cook in the world. No, I am not biased either. She is #1!
Moving forward, my family especially my dad loves a good bhuna curry. From what I know, the term Bhuna basically means a curry with a thick gravy. Some people prefer for their gravy to be almost dry. The point is, the consistency can vary depending on your personal preference. In our household, we love for our bhuna curries to be thick, but runny enough to mix with rice. Which how we like to eat it!
Growing up, I had really severe eczema and it was always advised I steer clear from eating eggs as it triggered my eczema further and made it worse. This only made me want to eat eggs more. The fact that I couldn’t have it made me hide and eat it whenever an egg curry was cooked.
Egg however isn’t something Amoo cooks very often. We are a family of lamb and chicken lovers. Once a week she will switch things up with a vegetable dish like lentils, or spinach or potatoes. This week however she opted for an egg curry & I jumped at the opportunity to blog it all!
