"This recipe is inspired by a weeknight dinner that was in high rotation during my childhood—eggs in coconut milk gravy—from one of the various Charmaine Solomon anthologies on my mother’s cookbook shelf. It’s a winning dish in many ways: cheap, filling, easy to put on the table after work, and delicious. Let’s also not forget its appearance—the almost fluorescent color of the sauce was always an exciting prospect for me as a kid. For this version, I’ve added my favorite Tuscan kale, plus my preference for a softer-centered egg rather than the hard-boiled of yesteryear. The gravy should be rich and thick, so look for coconut cream or check your coconut milk label to make sure there’s at least 80% coconut. If you can get your hands on curry leaves, as per the original, add them along with the ginger and garlic—just make sure to omit the coriander."
