South Indian style egg curry

I found this recipe in my old hand written recipe book.This recipe was shared by my neighbor when I was in college which she had got it through her sister.I prepared this egg curry after many years.I named this as South Indian style egg curry because Indian masala s and curry leaves are used in this dish.This dish goes well with chapati,rice or Idiyappam.
