Day 215 - Poached Egg Korma and Folded Chapati

This evening while thinking about some of the dishes that I had when I was with my mom and never cared to make it in my kitchen, one of the dishes that flashed through my mind was Poached Egg korma. This is my mom’s speciality dish and after making it for tonight’s dinner I learned from my husband that this is one of his favorite egg dishes. I am so glad that I finally made this. I had the korma with folded chapati.
