Nadan Mutta Roast / Kerala Style Egg Roast / Egg Roast

My love for eggs never fail at all..I love to try out new recipes all the time with them. I love the fact how this simple stuff turns out so much spectacular when cooked in different ways. As a food blogger, i never cook the same recipe again and again, but some dishes takes place in our menu often. This is one kind of dish, i have cooked this more times i can think of.

I strongly recommend you to try this recipe. It has some unique flavour and taste going in this. The main flavour is because it gets roasted in oil till the outer skin of the eggs get blistered. This makes the masala which we add into this go deep inside the eggs and make it tasty. I hope you will love this and let me know what you think.

  4. I admit this is the first recipe I didn't really like. I loved the idea of pan roasted hard-boiled eggs, so I had to try it. But it seemed like the dish had too many spices and not enough full-bodied ingredients (like tomatoes or other veggies). It had this bitter and dusty undertaste that the spices have before they have a chance to slowly blend with other stuffs. I was a little disappointed, but my husband assured me that it still tasted good: "although not as good as the other curries from the Yummy Tummy lady".
