Kerala Style Egg Masala

On a recent lunch at a friend’s place from Kerala, I discovered an interesting method of preparing egg – with curry leaves! It’s tangy and spicy and can compliment any gravy dish. Try it out today and let us know how it went with daal-rice combo or with paranthas.


  • Eggs – 4 – 6 nos.
  • Ginger – Garlic paste – 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Tomato – 1 no. finely chopped
  • Onion – 1 no. finely chopped
  • Black pepper corns – 4-5 nos.
  • Curry leaves – 8 – 10 nos.

  • Chili powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder -1 tps
  • Salt to taste
  • Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp


  1. Boil the eggs and remove the shell and keep aside.
