Curried Eggs in Spicy Coconut Milk Sauce
Curry up your breakfast with these delicious boiled eggs in a spicy coconut sauce. It's nice to be able to change up the monotony of traditional scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, etc. The great thing about this is the sauce. I just love duking big chunks of bread or roti in the sauce and eating it. It is so good. In fact, the sauce is so good that you could just eat it as is.
I like this pretty spicy, but you can reduce the amount of chili peppers and chili powder if you want to keep it milder.
