A different take on egg curry, this roasted egg masala is made the same way but results in a thicker gravy, and instead of boiled eggs, this dish has roasted eggs. Add in whole dry spices and this main course dish is transformed into a hearty party meal. Traditionally roasted in a tandoor, you can use your oven to roast it too.
