I called hubby for the answer, he told that it is kaada muttai(quail eggs). In addition to that he told that he has tasted it in a restaurant and it was not that good, But I don't know how you will make it..I wanted to take that, but wondered how it will taste like.
But later confidentally tooked a pack and reached home..That night I made a simple egg fry using this, I treated it like normal eggs…The result was awesome and hubby loved it a lot..He told that we should buy couple more packets on our next shopping.
The taste was pretty much like normal eggs, but tasted so good..I loved the way it looked like tiny morsels which I think is so cute..I am damn sure that kids will love these…Hope you will give these a try and tell me how it turned out..
