  2. Hi Aarthi whenever I try to deep fry eggs, it starts bursting ... I also got small burns due to the splattering oil ... M I doing anything wrong ??? One more thing ... Can I skip the garlic chili sauce in this recipe or any substitute for it ... Please suggest... Thank u

    1. you can skip it. Drain the egg well. If there is any water content it may splatter

  3. Nice different dish
    And easy to make just chutter putter

  4. Really nice
    Easy to make and delicious

  5. I'm looking forward to trying this! I've been searching for interesting egg recipes as we are coming into spring in Australia. My chickens, ducks, geese, turkey & quail are all starting to lay and I have so many eggs!

  6. Hi Aarthi thanks for the recipe.. cooked this dish today.. I absolutely enjoyed it and tastes really nice.. Waiting for my hubby to make a comment..

  7. I'm not able to fry idlis.When I try it withers out, any suggestions?

    1. You have to fry idlies in very very hot oil. Put idlies in fridge for 1 or 2 hours before frying

  8. I cooked this today for my wife. It turned out to be excellent. I used to order from a local restaurant. First 2 times it was good but later it was so boring and tasteless. So I thought of making it myself. And your recipe was simple but the one I was looking for. Thank you :)
