This post is special for a couple reasons. (I mean, they all are, but I’m about to tell you just why this one is.) First of all it’s the first time in, oh, a couple years that I’ve managed to eat something and write about it the next day. Secondly, it’s the first time in ages that I’ve followed a recipe to a “t”, with literally zero modifications on my part.
Actually, I lie. I followed a recipe a couple months ago and I sort of wished I hadn’t. So this is the first time in recent memory I followed a recipe exactly and actually
liked loved it. No big surprise, given the source.
It’s been a whole year since Natalie first posted about Egg Curry, and I confess, I thought it was weird at the time. Hard boiled eggs in curry sauce? Really? I’m pretty adventurous but that one wasn’t calling my name.
But I had a change of heart. Obviously because I’m 32 weeks pregnant I’m eating lots of “weird” things.
Kidding. I haven’t gone all pickles-and-ice-cream. Yet.
But I do love my eggs, which is a good thing, because they’re a total pregnancy superfood. In fact, it’s often recommended to eat two eggs every day while pregnant for their high protein and choline content. Choline, I learned, is a b-vitamin crucial to the development of baby’s memory functions. As long as you have healthy cholesterol levels, eating multiple eggs every day is generally regarded as healthy and safe. (Note: I am not a healthcare professional; if you are concerned about cholesterol levels please consult your doctor.)
I usually get my crack on (hah!) with protein pancakes or eggs scrambled with kale, but this week I was craving a little something different and remembered the recipe I had seen last year (heck, maybe all that choline is helping MY memory!)
And thankfully, when I told my hubs we were eating curry with hard boiled eggs, he was all, “Oh! Awesome! Shashi got that once!” Shashi is his work lunch buddy, and thanks to Shashi, hubs is becoming quite the expert on Indian food by frequenting various local restaurants. I’d bet that in a restaurant you’d be likely to see this dish served with rice or naan, but I opted for cauli-rice instead (simply grated cauliflower, steamed in the microwave.)
Since I followed the recipe exactly, there’s no need for me to type it out. Please visit Perry’s Plate to learn how to make Egg Curry. I promise, it’s really not all that weird. It’s actually very, very good. And do tell me, if you’re pregnant or have been, are you / were you shooting for two eggs per day? What is your favorite way to eat eggs?
