Nadan Mutta Curry

This egg curry is one i make very often for dinner.its a very easy curry to make.Only time consuming process is the sauting of onions.But this curry gives a nice taste of deeply sauted onions.So be careful to saute the onions nicely.This curry is a saviour when i dont have chicken or i forget to soak the chana/peas.
