Curried Vegetable, Poached Egg

Curried Vegetable, Poached Egg is made from poaching egg in Indian spiced vegetables. A very simple, easy and yet very delicious meal by itself. You can make this for your breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Vegetable and egg combination is one of my favorites. I used to make stir-fry vegetables and egg together with Indian spices. Recently, I just thought of poaching egg in vegetable curry.But then I just kept forgetting it. A week ago I have decided to try and I have had all ingredients in my fridge as well. At first, I thought of using the left over vegetable curry that I had from  previous night, then I have changed my mind and went on to make the vegetable curry from the scratch and then poached the egg in it.
