Guessing game anyone ?? – Poached egg curry

The past weeks have been crazy. Not the work but I am sincerely trying hard to cut down restaurant food and cook daily. I have not had much time to blog. Thanks friends for checking on me. I know I really sucked last time I tried to do a guessing game, but this time I think I got a real hard one. Can you guess what the white blob is ??

Update : Thanks dear friends for playing the guessing game with me. It is indeed poached egg-curry with a twist. When I make the egg curry, where the eggs is broken into the curry itself – technically the egg is supposed to cook in the curry without separating. But I found the egg splitting up. So I cooked the egg separately by placing all the whites into a cup and placed the cup itself in a vessel with water. Heated the vessel with water and that inturn cooked the eggwhites in the cup. After it cooled Voila !! came out the blob of eggwhite like a mould!!!

  15. I leant about this poached egg curry from my dad. He would break an egg or two into the fish curry, after it’s been taken off the heat. The egg would be cooked in the heat and would have all the goodness of fish and curry. yum..

    Was planning to cook fish this week. will do this. 🙂 thanks Revathi.

  17. hi,
    u have written that the egg started splitting when u broke it into the curry. my mom’s solution for this is, turn the gas flame to low (sim ideally) and then break the eggs. let the egg cook on low flame. it wont start spliting. this curry would taste superb if the egg is cooked in the gravy.
