Eggs are a great source of essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, Vitamin A and D, among others.
They are known to improve heart health, manage obesity, strengthen bones, and enhance nervous system function.
Further, eggs are simple and easy-to-make.

Sweet corn and cherry tomatoes makes the curry colourful. But these are optional. I love the taste of sweet corn so added it.
And not only that, it has so many health benefits.
1. Reduces the risk of Anemia. Corn is rich in Vitamin B12, folic acid and iron which helps in the production of red blood cells in the body.
2. Energy Enhancer.
3. Miracle for those underweight.
4. Lowers Blood Sugar & Cholesterol Level. 5. Helpful during Pregnancy.
6. Preserve Healthy Skin.

And now coming to the low calorie cherry tomatoes. These tomatoes always makes your salad and other foods beautiful and attractive.
1. Cherry tomatoes are rich in a number of nutrients that are good for your health.
When you’re trying to lose weight, the key is to eat foods that keep you full without costing you too many calories. Ten cherry tomatoes, which is about a cup, has only 30 calories. If you’re on a 1,500-calorie diet, those 10 cherry tomatoes only meet 2 percent of your daily calorie needs.
2. In addition to being low in calories, the red veggie is also a good source of fiber with 2 grams in the 1-cup serving. Even if you’re not counting calories to lose weight, making it a point to add more fiber to your diet may help you drop a few pounds, according to study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
3. Ten cherry tomatoes has almost as much potassium as a medium banana with 400 milligrams. Eating more potassium-rich foods may help lower your blood pressure.
4. Protection Against Free Radicals
Protecting your body from toxic substances that cause damage to your cells may help lower your risk of a number of chronic illnesses, including heart disease and cancer. Tomatoes contain a few nutrients that offer such protection, including vitamin C, lycopene and beta carotene, which are known as antioxidants.
