Hot and Sour Egg roast

Posted by Annita on February 20, 2006

A new version of Naadan Egg Roast..The recipe source is again Leelamma Aunty only.She is my Amma’s elder sister.She used to try out different recipes and they all turned good.I think she’s born with talent.

Back to the recipe..

Boiled eggs -4
Chopped Onion -3
Chopped Tomato -1 and half
Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 tbsp
Kashmiri Chilly Powder /Paprika – 1tbsp(This gives a bright red color to the curry.You can use normal chilly powder also,but then reduce the amount to 3/4 tsp..otherwise the curry will be too hot)
Coriander Powder -1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp
Curry Leaves -a few
Coriander Leaves chopped – 1 tbsp
Tomato Ketchup -1 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Coconut Oil – 2 tbsp

Boil the eggs and break the shells.Cut the eggs into two.Keep aside.
Pour oil into a heated pan.When the oil is heated add chopped onion & curry leaves and saute for a while.
Add ginger-garlic paste and stir.When the onion turns brown add salt,chilly powder,coriander powder and turmeric powder.Saute till the raw smell of the masala goes away.Then add tomatoes and stir well.You can add water if needed.After sometime the oil starts to seperate.Add Tomato ketchup and stir for a while.Then add coriander leaves and egg pieces and let it simmer for 2-3 mins.Garnish with Coriander leaves.This goes very well with Porotta or Roti.

    Hi annita
    I am bothering you again. You have mentioned that plum cake should be kept in the fridge. does it get hard once we keep in the refrigerator?
    When we go to pizza hut there is a salad which is with macaroni and it is sweet(macaroni salad). it has some sultanas and mayonnaise. Can you please explain t me how to make such a salad? can get hardened,then you can thaw it for few hours before using it..
    Other alternatives are steaming and microwaving..I always prefer steaming.
    And i’m really sorry about that macaroni salad…haven’t tried it yet…so i’m not sure about it..sorry again leela..
