Fried Egg Masala

Living amidst Egg-Lovers, its been long on my mind to try some new dish with eggs. Personally, I eat eggs rarely and only selected preparation of it.

Sunday, when I had an ardent egg lover for lunch, thought of attempting a different preparation rather than the usual boil, burji (scrambled egg), or egg curry. Ended up making a spicy fried egg masala dish, that I saw in another food blog.


  • Boiled Eggs          : 4 (for this dish, you will be slicing an egg into two halves)
  • Onion                    : 1 small or medium sized, diced lengthwise
  • Jeera Powder         : 1 tspn
  • Coriander Powder : 1/2 tspn (or 1)
  • Chilli Powder        : 1 - 1.5 tspn (as spicy as you like)
  • Oil                         : 1 tbspn
  • Kasoori Methi       : 1/2 tspn
  • Garam Masala       : 1-2 pinch
  • Mixed herbs          : 1/2 tspn
  • Curry Leaves         : to taste
  • Salt                        : to taste

  1. Boil the eggs, peel them and slice into two halves each
  2. In a non stick pan (kadai), add oil. 
  3. As it heats up, add onion. Fry it to light golden color
  4. To this add all spices and salt
  5. On a side of the pan, pour a spoon of oil and slightly fry the eggs both sides. They should turn light golden (you can also fry it separately and keep it ready)
  6. Then mix the masalas with the egg. add kasoori methi and dried herbs, and allow it to cook for a minute
  7. Remove from fire and serve it as Starters, Side Dish for Roti or with Rice
