Top 10 quick and cheap veggie meals [#10: Curried eggs]

Updated on August 1, 2012
Cast your vote for Curried eggs

Another favourite yet easy dish. Alter the number of eggs depending on your appetite. Normally two per person is sufficient. The fruit in this recipe gives the curry a sweet side (which is great for children) but if you want to counter that, just add extra curry powder. Finely chopped vegetables keeps the chopping skills honed!

APPROX COST (per serving): £1.00 / $1.60
