Andhra Style Egg Pulusu Curry Recipe

The eggs have been a staple food for humans since prehistoric times. The most common egg eaten today, the chicken egg is believed to have come from wild birds that our ancestors in Southeast Asia and India domesticated before 7500 BC. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics depict servants carrying ostrich eggs as offerings. From times of the ancient Romans egg dishes were very common for meals.

Eggs have been a ubiquitous dish in the history of mankind for many reasons. On the one hand, they are nutritious. Eggs contain one of the highest values ​​as dietary protein, which help humans develop new cells and maintain healthy tissues. An egg has only 75 calories, but contains 7 grams of protein, so it is one of the richest sources of this essential nutrient.

Another reason is that the eggs act as a binder and thickening suitable for a variety of foods. Ancient people got a little egg on ground and wheat breads and pastries were born.

Finally, eggs helped as a sustainable agricultural practice food for people who had very little nutritious food available. Think about this: if people kill a chicken and eat, it only last one day. If chickens are kept and eggs are eaten, people have food indefinitely. The ancient Romans valued eggs. They even came to believe that the eggshells had magical properties.

Lately, eggs have lost some of their magic especially in Western cultures but are, mostly, one of the basic ingredients for breakfast. Around the world, people do fascinating things with eggs from careful fermentation for rare delicacies then fried to offer as snacks on the street.

If you are one who only eat the same way every day, here I share some different ideas to change the way you consume.

So I decided to make a brief discussion on the curry to have some clarity on the subject.

The eggs are boiled and are flavored and then placed in a creamy sauce made of cream and yoghurt. The fried onion and tomato is not used as basis for this curry, because the authentic egg curry should be sweet and sour. In this regard it should be noted that some restaurants to save time using a paste of boiled onions which gives a strong onion flavor to the finished dish, arousing the horror of the patrons, which is heavy and unbalanced.
