This is a really spicy curry for all you spice lovers out there. Very easy and tasty! I tried this at a friend of mines and finally got the recipie outta him. It is authentic pakistani food you won't find in any restaurant. It is on the high spicy end but you can always adjust the spice to taste. Get the spices at any indian/pakitani grocery store. I asked him the names of all of the spices incase they are labeled in another language.

Delicious! Spicy, but not too hot....my kids (12 & 15) loved it! And very easy to make. I served this over basmati & they all asked if I was ok because I generally won't serve starch on starch but the sauce needed the rice. I made 8 eggs - 2 per person & 4 small potatoes. there were no leftovers. made for My 3 Chefs 6/12.
