Kerala Style Egg Roast Recipe

Friday, October 16, 2015

Learn how to make Kerala Style Egg Roast / Naadan Mutta Roast with me in a very easy manner. This egg roast goes with hot rice, rotis, appams etc. Or even on its own if you are like me. It gets ready in under 30 minutes and is cooked up at least once a week at my place.

My Father makes them the best. He is very generous with coconut oil and sautes onion to exact perfection. You know how it definitely takes special skills to know when to stop, well he has a sense for it. Some of the non-vegetarian dishes are best cooked by him at our home. Every Sunday, he will go and get best quality Mutton(Goat Meat) and make the most killer Mutton Curry. Words cannot describe how delicious they will be. I am just waiting for my next trip to India.

This post has been pending from last Sunday. As soon as i was done shooting Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake, we had this egg roast, rice and dal for lunch. Simple and satisfying.

If you like Kerala food and be happen to be somewhere around an authentic restaurant be sure to try this delicacy. You will be surely blown away by the taste and exciting flavors this humble egg roast has. Both of us finished this at one go. While i kept eggs for boiling and cooked rice and dal, hubby dear helped me with chopping onions, tomatoes etc and within minutes we were done. Excluding the time it took me to take pictures of-course.

Let's get on to this simple recipe.
