Yellow Egg Curry from North Thailand

This Egg Curry from North Thailand is strongly influenced by the cuisines of Myanmar and India. Like the Burmese Golden Egg Curry (Bae Uu Chin Hin) this vegetarian curry is very simple to cook. In our authentic recipe we tried to show you how easy you can cook a traditional recipe from Asia. Based on the fact that meat is expensive for many families this dish is only with veggies from the garden and eggs from the own chickens or from the neighbors chickens.

Cheap and fast to cook!

All ingredients you’ll find in the list should be fresh and especially the veggies can be different depending on the season you are cooking this recipe. In summer you can add zucchini but also cauliflower is a good choice. It doesn’t matter what kind of veggies you choose. At the end you will have a super healthy and delicious dish on your plate.
