Egg Masala Curry (Mutta Masala Curry with Milk)

There are several types of egg recipes in Indian Cuisine. Egg Masala Curry (Mutta Masala Curry with milk) is a mild spicy curry with excellent taste and texture.For this recipe I added, homemade meat spice powder  for fragrance (it gives an awesome aroma and taste) and some fresh milk for thickening the gravy. It is a good side dish for breakfast items like Appam, Idiyappam, Puttu and Chappathi etc.
