The amazing part of this recipe is the little crunchy fried leaves on top! I mean, its all good, but that just takes it to the next level!

So get your naan on and fry up some eggs, slather this all over them, top with an egg and some chilli jam and you are good to go. Easy midweek dinner sorted! (How good are eggs hey??)

Of course this is good with all your usual suspects;

Cambodian Beef Curry

Cashew Chicken Curry

Turmeric Galangal Fish Curry

Chicken Biryani

Burmese Eggplant Curry

to name a few. Have fun!
