EGG masala ROAST

Egg masala roast is a masala egg recipe in which eggs are nicely roasted in onion tomato gravy. This is a Kerala style Mutta roast where eggs are boiled, peeled and cooked in the masala gravy. This is usually called as nadan Mutta roast in some parts of south India and the gravy made is a spicy onion tomato gravy into which few spices are added and cooked well.

Eggs are the most versatile ingredient in any pantry. You can have them for breakfast, lunch, evening snacks and dinner and still not get bored of it at all! I don’t get bored,  eggs are my favourite! Stir eggs into a soup, fry a simple omelette, fry and add on top of the breakfast bowl, make muffins out of them, put them in a curry they all are delicious!
