Egg Molee

Egg molee has been inspired by fish molee giving it the same rich coconut milk curry but this time with egg. This dish originated in Kerala through the influence of the traders and the legacy they left behind. It was this blend of cultures, imported spices, and local produce that brought together this fusion dish. I enjoyed this with plain rice but it goes very well with appams too 🙂
