Chettinad Style Egg Kuzhambu :  Like us on Youtube for more Video Recipes
Those who like  spicy & hot  food always opt for  Chettinad Cuisine.!   It is one of the spiciest and the most aromatic in India. It is popular for its traditional & mouthwatering recipes, which is sure to tingle our tastebuds.  I am a big fan of Chettinad food &  its spicy aroma. 
This  Kuzhambu  is a famous dish of   Chettinad  &  I found the recipe in a youtube video, and it came out exactly the same taste as in restaurants. It was little thick, lipsmacking and instant hit in my home :)
This recipe is a good combination with plain white rice & roasted pappad or rotis.
