Egg Masala

Selecting this one as the first egg recipe of my blog wouldn't b a bad start na? Cuz, this one is really easy to prepare and a best match with appam, chappathi, idiappam, etc.. and a must know for almost all housewives and some hubbies out ter ;)! There would be different versions of this dish with almost all Keralites. An absolute delight indeed!

Boiled eggs : 3 nos.
Finely sliced onion : 2 nos.
Ginger : 1/2 inch piece
Garlic : 7 pods
Green chilly : 3 nos.

Coriander powder : 1 tspn
Fennel seeds powder : 21/2 tspn
Oil : 4-5 tbspn

  • Boil the eggs, remove the shell and keep aside
  • Take a pressure cooker, pour oil and once hot, add finely chopped ginger, garlic and green chillies until the raw smell goes off.
  • Put finely sliced onion and saute along with a little salt and turmeric powder.
  • Once the oinion gets slightly brownish in colour, add chilly powder, coriander powder and fennel seeds powder and saute with a little water to get the powders cooked. Add garam masala too.
