  1. Oh my goodness this sounds SO rich and flavorful!

  2. That sounds so delicious! A much better way to poach some eggs!

  3. This soup sounds so amazing. Very exotic sounding to me.

  4. I make an old family recipe of shrimp stew with eggs poached in the gravy which we love. I think your curry gravy with eggs would also be a favorite in our house!

  5. This sounds amazing! A must-try for sure!!! Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - Colleen

  6. I love that this egg drop curry comes together in only 30 minutes! Sounds incredible!
