Muttai thokku

Egg thokku is one of my hubby favorite dish on Sundays. Already I have posted spicy egg gravy in which I told my friends mother used to prepare the egg thokku in a different way. I first thought of preparing that egg thokku, but due to my laziness prepared this thokku as usual. Do try and let me know how this egg thokku came for you...
