Egg - Mango Curry

Tips:

1.  If the mango is less sour, you can add  a little lemon juice, a tiny piece of kudam puli or tamarind juice. Instead of mango, you can add tamarind juice along with 1 medium sized tomato.

2.  You can also add ground coconut paste instead of coconut milk.

3. You may add chopped eggs instead of whole eggs.
