Spicy Egg Masala

4 from 1 vote

This spicy Egg Masala is my all-time favorite, my mom use to prepare this very often, mostly she accompany this with variety rice like coconut rice and lemon rice. My kids and their friends, my hubby and his colleagues ask me for this dish whenever they come to our home. Everyone could try this out, just as a change of having simple boiled egg. It tastes delicious, spongy and spicy. I have tried this with usual onions, but when prepared with small onions (sambhar onions / shallots) increases taste to the masala. Let us move on to the recipe…
