Flavorful,yet very elegant Egg Malai Masala ,cooked in fragrant spices and goes so well with naan or rice!

A wonderful post for all those who love eggs in their diet ,its creamy delicious Egg Malai Masala!
Very flavorful,yet creamy gravy,which goes well with naan or rice.
I had never tried this dish anywhere,but somehow came up with this recipe😁 and it tasted so awesome. Happy me!
My kids love creamy gravies,rather curries that are sweet or spicy in particular. I usually make butter chicken for them as this is another creamy delicious chicken gravy that they love.
Check my recipe of Butter Chicken here!
I have few egg recipes shared : Egg Fried Rice,Egg Tawa Masala,check these too.

My family is super choosy about food and that makes me crazy. No matter what I do ,they love to have seafood and chicken all the time. Somehow finding ways to feed them veggies ,eggs ,fruits,beans,lentils ,millet's is a challenge😏

Even if we make very elaborate spread as per everyone's liking but sometimes one simple easy dish makes entire crowd happy.
Since I knew that my kids would love something thick creamy curry so I made with eggs instead of chicken or seafood and it turned out so amazing that it goes perfectly with naan and can be eaten with plain rice/ghee rice/jeera rice too.

I enjoyed this with Pav/Bread. I have shared recipe of Homemade Pav recipe too.
