Astho Dim-er Malai Curry - Whole Eggs in Coconut Sauce

Malai Curry is a favourite sauce made with coconut milk that is most commonly combined with shrimpfish or chicken. Today I decided to cook eggs in coconut milk. I've made this before with eggs cut in half, but today they were left whole. The hard-boiled eggs and chunks of potatoes are fried (separately) to a golden-brown colour, then simmered in the coconut sauce. The eggs are shelled and scored across the circumference 4-5 times through the egg white to the egg yolk, so that the sauce can penetrate them to the core.
