These were wonderful, easy, and the curry flavor does not overpower the eggs. Tasty!

This is indeed a wonderful breakfast! Lovely spice blend; made my curry powder to use in this recipe. Served this with Sourdough Rye Bread by Galley_Wench. Will definately be making this again! Thank you Derf for sharing. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Super Yummy! Lovely flavored eggs. I don't have much experience poaching eggs, but I was impressed that this worked perfectly, and mine looked just like your photo. I made a half recipe in a small pot. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
