About my masala egg fry recipe
Black peppercorns, red chillies, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds are toasted before grinding to a coarse powder. Adding salt to the mix completes the masala egg fry seasoning. Hard-boiled eggs are coated in this spice mix seasoning, and pan-fried with some crispy-fried curry leaves. The eggs are then sliced and dusted with more seasoning before serving. This masala egg fry is an egg-static starter! Sorry, I had to say that! 🙂
This recipe will help you produce enough seasoning for a dozen eggs. I am using 6 eggs in this recipe. But note that I have enough for another 6 to be stored for later. Make it once and use in batches. When stored well, it’ll easily stay fresh for 3-4 months.
Some tips for perfect boiled eggs
- Do not use eggs directly from the refrigerator. Leave them out to reach room temperature.
- Start cracking the shells only after the eggs have fully cooled down.
- And finally, when it is time to slice the eggs, don’t use a knife. Use a thread, hold the ends between the thumb and index finger on each hand, and slice with it. You’ll get a clean cut.
