The hard-boiled eggs are cooked in a similar way to the Indonesian dish, Son in laws eggs. I love this dish and serve it with a chicken curry,rice and a dish of dhal. You could add diced fried aubergine or courgetes to increase the vegetable content. If you have enjoyed my other curries you will like this one too.
