Mutta Salna / Egg Salna / Eggs Cooked in a Spicy Coconut Sauce - Thattu Kadai Recipes / Street Food Recipes

My third day for cooking with alphabets series is with the letter 'M'..I was thinking of so many recipes using this letter, but I didn't have time to cook anything..But luckily I had a post which is pending in my drafts for a while..i checked it and the name starts with the letter M.

If you ever have parota from any road side shop they will serve it with chicken salna or mutta salna..Both are so delicious..This makes a perfect sidedish for roti, parota, dosa or idli..I hope you will love it and tell me how it turned out..I am sending this recipe to Blogging Marathan Day 3 with the theme 'Cooking with Alphabets'.
