  • Cooking pan


  • 4 Boiled eggs
  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1 Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Fennel seeds
  • ½ Cumin seeds
  • 1 cup Onions chopped
  • 1 cup Tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp Green chillies chopped
  • Curry leaves
  • ½ tsp Turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp Chilli powder
  • ¾ tsp Coriander powder
  • ½ tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¾ tsp Pepper powder
  • ½ cup Water
  • Coriander leaves



  • Hard boil 4 eggs, remove the shell and cut them into half, keep aside.
  • Chop the onions finely and I suggest you use red onions. I used white since I didn't have red onions at that time.

Recipe for mutta roast:

  • Heat 3tbsp of oil in a pan, season with cinnamon, 1/2 tsp fennel seeds, and 1/2 tsp cumin seeds.
  • When the seeds splutter, add onions and saute well for 5mins until onions become soft and brown. Add 1 tbsp of chopped green chillies and fresh curry leaves.
  • Next, add a tsp of ginger garlic paste and saute nicely to remove the raw smell of garlic. Add a cup of chopped tomatoes and cook till the tomatoes are soft.
  • Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp of chilli powder, 3/4 tsp coriander powder and 1/2 tsp of garam masala. Now add the salt needed for the masala. Also, put 1/2 tsp of pepper powder and mix. Saute masalas for a few seconds and add a half cup of water.
  • Next, add the boiled half cut eggs with a lavish amount of fresh coriander leaves. Mix gently without breaking the eggs. Cover with a lid and let the Nadan egg roast simmer for 5 minutes until the masala releases oil.
  • Switch off and serve the egg roast with dosa, plain rice, or chapati.



1) Boil eggs properly atleast for 20mins.
2) Adjust masala powder quantities to suit your needs.
