After living in United States for more than a decade now i have adapted to lot of things culturally. One such thing is to never dropping in on friends/relatives without calling ahead , especially weekdays when we are busy winding down for the day . And it makes sense to me .But , growing up in India its very common for relatives , guests to drop by unexpected without notice and sometimes endup staying for lunch or dinner. We would pretty often have an uncle or aunt visiting us and mom would whip up a quick meal with Egg curry , lentils / dal , flavoured rice , yoghurt and some fryums. Egg curry seemed a little bit more special than regular veggies and can me made in 30 mins, so mom would make it quite often.
Hyderabadi cusine is known for its rich spices ,salans and biryanis .The use of dry coconut, tamarind, and red chillies along with many spices are the common ingredients that make Hyderabadi cuisine different .Ande ka salan means Eggs in a gravy ,is often found in most restaurants in Hyderabad (India) served along with Chicken biryani .Its one of the most flavorful dishes usually spicy with a tangy masala gravy, often a staple in most homes. Its my go to dish for any occasion including sunday lunches , whick takes me back to my nostalgic days back home. It tastes delicious served with simple rice or rotis. Recipe below.
