Quail Egg Curry

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Quail is a mid-sized game bird and its eggs very small, speckled with brown spots and are a little bigger than an olive. Their yolk is larger than their white. These small eggs are packed with nutritional benefits and contain a lot of vital vitamins and minerals and contain 1gm of fat per egg.

The first time I bought them was from an Asian Market, long ago in California. I simply boiled them and ate them as I wasn't an enthusiastic blogger back then. Eversince I started blogging, I have never been short of ideas and do dare to try new recipes.When I read this recipe a while ago on this amazing blog of an amazing Blogger, I knew what exactly I could make with them.

I, once again stumbled upon these eggs at the Asian Market and as soon as I came home,  I set them to boil and tweaked the recipe and made this flavorful curry. So, next time you find quail eggs, don't hesitate to go ahead and buy some and cook this up and enjoy the benefits of the nutrition they have to offer.
