Spinach Egg Curry is an Indian style curry made with boiled eggs and spinach. If you haven't tasted this combo before, you would be surprised like me when I say this is a healthy and heavenly combination. Even I wondered how could spinach be so delicious?? But what interests me was combining egg with spinach which can never be my favourite. :P My doctor always insists us to include lots of greens in our diet and this curry has been my life saver now. I make these for rotis and chappathi's. Lets see the recipe for the curry loaded with lots of iron, folic acid and proteins!!!
