One of the first things I cooked and turned out perfect, and one of the few things I can cook without ever going wrong. It's easy and yummy too! My mom's recipe.

I really liked the idea of an egg curry, but this was a little bland for us. I even added extra of all the spices after tasting and it still didn't perk up. I definately wouldn't add the water next time. Maybe 1/2 cup. I boiled it for about 15-20 minutes trying to thicken it up again. Added potatoes and peas. Wasn't bad and I do like the eggs, but the sauce just didn't do it for us. Fun way to use up the Easter eggs though, and I always like something different.
