Eggs in Spinach Gravy / Poached Eggs in Palak / Spinach based Gravy.

This was shown in a cookery program , which I watch daily as part of my personal Relaxation Therapy,
I think if am asked to watch a cookery show while in my deep sleep also would I be happy to do….
This curry was striking as the host while during her presentation narrated that this was something which was  prepared usually during olden days in Kerala as most of our Grand parents would know this.

 I wonder why then such a nutritious and attractive idea got eliminated from our Kitchen….anyways I tried it and it came out good , and I now listed this among a very nutritious side dish for Chapathi/ Indian Flat Bread.

Eggs – 3 no’s (Or more)
Onion – 1 medium chopped
