Kerala Style Egg Curry Recipe with step by step pictures. Egg curry with freshly roasted spices, onions and coconut.
I made this some days ago and served it with coconut milk aapam. The combination was so good. This one is a little spicy gravy which is perfect with aapam or dosa or idlis..I made some slashes in the eggs so the juice can go deep inside the eggs.
A hot egg curry known as Kerala Style Egg Curry (Mutta Curry) is a staple in Keralan households. Coconut milk can be used or not in its preparation. Serve it with rice or appam for a filling meal. Eggs were cooked in a hot onion-tomato gravy, both boiled and roasted.
The exotic flavour of the Garam masala and spice powders is complemented by the sweetness of the onion and tomatoes. The dish becomes tastier the more onions there are in it. Every spoonful of rice and curry leaves the tongue with a wonderful blend of sweetness and heat.
