  7. This looks super delicious. Love the prawn mango combination , we make it just like fish kuzhambhu ..
    BTW about the eggs, boil just for 10 mins and then cover the hot pot and rest for 10 mins or so,That way you get soft eggs.
    when you are cooking in the masala, do not add more water just enough to to mix the masala and coat the egg. hope this helps.:)
