Kerala Egg Roast using Coconut Milk/ Nadan Mutta Roast

Kerala egg roast is the popular and a delicious gravy which we can have with almost all the breakfast items. An easy and a tasty dish which can be prepared within no time.
Hard-boiled eggs simmered in the coconut milk along with onion- tomato gravy which is well blended with all the spices. A perfect side dish for appams, idiyappams, puttu and also with vegetable pulav and rotis.

In almost all the Kerala household, this dish is prepared in their own different ways. My mom and MIL make their own version, without adding coconut milk, which I posted long time back. I have added coconut milk to reduce the spice level of red chili powder. Coconut milk gives a unique taste and also enhances the flavors. Here in this recipe, I have used the coconut milk powder. If you don't want the eggs, just skip them and add your choice of vegetables and enjoy.

  1. Eggs- 5 nos
  2. Onions (sliced)- 2 nos
  3. Tomatoes( sliced)- 1 no
  4. Green Chillies(slit)- 3 nos
  5. Ginger and Garlic Paste- 1 tbsp
  6. Red Chilli Powder- 2 tbsp
  7. Coriander powder- 1 tbsp
  8. Turmeric Powder- 1/2 tbsp
  9. Garam Masala- 1tsp
  10. Coconut Milk- 1 Cup
  11. Oil- 1 Tsp
  12. Mustard Seeds- 1 tsp
  13. Cumin Seeds- 1 tsp
  14. Curry Leaves- few
  15. Salt- as required

  1. Hard boil the eggs till done, de-shell them and keep this aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and curry leaves.
  3. Saute the onions until translucent, add the sliced tomatoes, ginger- garlic paste, and green chilies. Stir till it turns mushy.

  1. Appam and egg roast is such a beautiful combination. I have not used coconut milk in egg roast but this looks so creamy. I usually add a little sugar to cut through the spice levels and it tastes really good. I do not generally add cumin seeds, may be I will try adding next time.
