Egg Pepper Masala | Muttai Milagu Masala

Egg pepper masala

Last week I made this Egg Pepper Masala as I felt bit lazy to prepare something with chicken or fish. I normally prepare this egg masala with less or not spiciness keeping kids in mind. But this time, made this fiery, Egg Pepper Masala which is really hot and spicy. Even I could not tolerate the spiciness 😜😜. But this can also be made less spicy version by adjusting the spices and chillies.

Egg Pepper Masala

Preparation time: 15 min | Cook Time: 15 min | Serves: 4
Recipe Category: Sidedish | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Eggs - 5
Onion - 2 chopped lengthwise finely
Tomato - 2 medium sized, chopped finely
Oil - 2tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/5tsp
Curry leaves - 2 springs 
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Green chillies - 2 slit lengthwise 
Turmeric powder - 1/5tsp
Chilli powder - 1tsp
Coriander powder - 1tsp
Cumin powder -1/4 tsp
Black Pepper powder - 1.5tsp (freshly ground) 
Water - to sprinkle (optional)
Salt - as per taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing


1. Hard boil the eggs and remove the outer shell. Cut the eggs into half as shown below. ( I removed the shells, before the egg is fully cooked. Check the Link To know, how long a egg will take to cook and cook accordingly ). 

2. In a wok or kadai, add oil and when hot add the cumin seeds and the curry leaves. Fry for 30 sec. Now addin the green chilli, onion and salt and sauté it. 

3. When onion becomes translucent, add the ginger garlic paste and sauté, till the raw smell goes off. Now add the tomatoes. 

4. Sauté the tomatoes well. Add the mentioned powders ( chilli, turmeric, coriander, cumin ) and mix it. Add the pepper powder.

5. Sprinkle little water if you need or if the gravy becomes thick. Add the eggs now.

6. To make the eggs well coated with the prepared masala, I normally break the eggs (chop them) and mix well with the masala. If you don't like chopping the eggs, them just mix them gently and leave it.

7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with rice or roti.

1. This dish would be really spicy and as I said before, you can reduce the spice level by adjusting the green chilli, chilli powder and pepper powder. 
2. Do not over cook the eggs, as they turn to be rubbery. 
3. Always try to Use freshly ground black Pepper.
