Egg roast recipe, how to make egg roast with step by step pictures.

Egg roast is a very simple but spicy side dish and a popular Kerala dish. Kerala Mutta Roast is Kerala's own quick Egg Roast, a simple yet spicy side dish with onions, tomatoes and Indian spices, and very restaurant style.
Egg roast is a favorite breakfast side dish and usually paired with appam, puttu or even roti. It is so easy to make that all you need is just under 20 min to get it done and a perfect side dish when guests surprise you with a visit.

If you are a regular here, you know that I should be renamed as the "Spice Woman" I love spicy food and so does my family.....so I added green chilly along with Kashmiri chilly powder, but if you do not favor much spice, you can reduce the green chilli or you can add it without cutting or slitting, so that the heat does not release out, but the flavor does.........and this one is a treat for Homey during Lent. He love to have it with appam for breakfast.

 I add a bit of "saunf" or "perumjeerakam" to the coconut oil, and that does take it to another level....very restaurant style mutta roast!!

So lets get started!!

Serves: 2-3.

Once the onions started to brown slightly, it should take about 7 -10 min on low flame, add in 1 1/2 tsp Kashmiri chilly powder (if using ordinary chilly powder, then 1 tsp would be fine). Add in 2 tsp coriander powder.

Half tsp pepper power and 1/4 tsp turmeric powder.

Lastly, half tsp garam masala powder

Mix all the powders, so that the raw flavor diminishes......remember the fire is on low. Add in the 2 chopped tomatoes, mix well. Add in 1/3 cup of water, so that the tomatoes are incorporated and blended well. Keep mixing on and off for about 5 min on low flame.

The tomatoes are almost cooked and blended well. I like to add in some curry leaves for added flavor....and I like to saute a bit more (about 2 min more)

Until the onions and tomatoes are nicely roasted. Add in the eggs, give it a stir....so that the masala is nicely coated on the eggs.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot.
