Kolhapuri Egg Masala is very spicy and delicious egg gravy prepared using dry coconut , black peppercorns and spices. Kolhapuri is recipes have more heat in it and this one too is quite spicy. But I have altered the original recipe to get more thick gravy and also reduced little heat . Still this Kolhapuri Egg Masala is a spicy and delicious. The recipe gets the main flavour by roasting , spices and dry coconut on low heat till fragrant.
