Masala - e - eggs!

This is one of the oldest n easiest snack I've ever made.. a super hit discovery of moms in South Kerala it seems.. The idea is not mine; after marriage, its bigM, my husband who told me about this snack and he gave me the recipe. His moothumma used to make this snack for him n his bro during summer vacation visits to her house.. and that taste has influenced him so much that he still asks me to make those during tea-time, occasionally though.. 

Ingredients :

Hard-boiled eggs : 5 nos.
Turmeric powder : 1/2 tspn
Chilly powder : 2 tspn
Pepper powder : 1 tspn
Salt : as frequired
Curry leaves : 1 sprig
Coconut oil : 3 tbspn
A little water for marination
  • Mix all the ingredients (except eggs) with a little water to make a smooth fine paste. 
  • Make vertical slits over the eggs and apply the paste evenly. Keep aside for an hour.
  • Take a heavy bottomed pan and pour oil; when hot, fry the curry leaves and keep aside.
  • Deep fry the eggs under medium flame until the eggs turn brownish in colour.
  • Garnish with fried curry leaves n serve HOT!
Note : You may use the egg of hens, ducks or of quails (kaada).
