Made many egg massala recipes before and this was a new one to me because most use curry powder. I did not use 4 chliies but 1 large one, the reason was that the main dish was already very spicy, this was served as a side-dish, and I wanted to keep a contrast in flavors so did not want this to be too hot. I also made the sauce in the morning, added the eggs when I reheated the sauce, the flavors had improved from making it in advance. Will make this again, it had a very light and fresh taste!
