  • coriander powder - 2 tsp
  • kashmiri chili powder - 1/2 tsp
  • oil - 6 to 8 tbsp

  • coriander leaves for garnishing
  1. Boiled 8 eggs and keep aside.
  2. Take black pepper, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, ginger and garlic and crush them using the mortar and pestle.
  3. In heavy bottom pan and 4 tablespoon of gingilly oil.
  4. When the oil is hot and the crushed ingredients such as black pepper, cumin seeds, ginger garlic paste Etc. Fry them for at least 2 to 3 minutes until you get that nice Aroma of them.
  5. After that add the onions and start to sauté them nicely.
  6. After a while add the Salt as per your taste.
  7. Start sauting them again. Add the green chilies which are cut lengthwise and saute them.
  8. add the fresh Curry leaves and again mix them nicely.

  9. Now add the chili powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder and mix nicely so that all the powders are mixed up fully.
  10. add the Kashmiri chili powder and mix them. Kashmiri chili powder gives very nice color to the masala but it wont be that much spicy. Adding kashmiri chilli powder is purely optional.

  11. Add the water and slightly makes them.
  12. Now add the tomatoes and saute them till they becomes soft.

  13. Add 2 tbsp of oil if needed.

  14. Smash the onion and Tomatoes nicely so that there are no bigger pieces. Smash them nicely.

  15. Now add the boiled eggs and mix them gently so that it does not break. If you want you can put this later on the X and add them to the Masala. But here I didn't make any slits.
  16. If you want you can add another 2 tbsp of oil and mix them.

  17. Cover and cook for 8 to 10 minutes in low Flame.

  18. After 10 minutes add one teaspoon of sugar and mix them. This step is purely optional and I feel that sugar enhances the taste of the masala.
  19. garnish with coriander leaves and serve the Masala egg roast hot. It is a great side dish for Dosa or Italy or chapati or any kind of tiffin items.

  20. Yummy Masala Egg Roast is ready
