Egg Curry cooked in Coorgi style is an adaption of Chicken Gravy Coorgi style. Cooked with minimum spices we enjoyed it when we went to live at this homestay called Ashania run by Mr &Mrs. Prasad.

Mrs Prasad shared recipes that she made for us and I am finally trying to pen them down.

My mom as a kid had lived in Coorg, Madikeri and she shared many fond memories. Coorgi wedding according to her was a treat to watch and participate in. She and her brother, strict vegetarians, used to tell us stories about how the crabs were roasted in the fireplace that was used to heat water.

How the pepper grew and how the coffee there tasted the BEST!

In short, I grew up wanting to be a part of this beautiful place, the traditions and their food. Therefore, last year we went as a part of a trek and since I could not participate in trek as I was not in good health we visited separately. The girls had their list of places to visit and we had ours. The two days spent there were the best holiday we had.

In case you visit Coorg be sure to visit the monastery it is a beautiful place and the Vegetarian momos you get there are amazing. Do not forget to stock up on chocolate either. When you are there do visit Dubare, the elephant camp. There are strict timings so do check and visit. On the way, we came across a Café called Big Cup they sell amazing coffee the best Arabica you can get. Hmm looks like we should visit again.

We ate this as a chicken dish I have made it with eggs. You can substitute with mushrooms, paneer or even the humble potatoes. Only adjust the spice levels as per taste. There is a special Coorgi masala that you can check out here.

    One of my friends is from Coorg and they have amazing recipes. I saw a documentary on Coog cuisine and found their exotic ways of cooking and the coffee plantation.

    Will have to find out what corgi masala is. Addition of spices in varying amounts makes all the difference to curries. Mildly spiced is what I like.
