This egg pulusu in andhra style is quite a popular dish in andhra region and best when we make it during cold winter evenings or sundays or during rains and eat along with some fries or paapad.

The tempering too that is added is very minimum with just some mustard seeds and curry leaves that go into this pulusu.
