I've been making this egg masala(muttai masala) since the day I got hold of this recipe. We loved it for the burst of masala flavours with a thick and hot gravy perfect to pair it with rice or even any mild pulaos like jeera pulao / peas pulao. Through the days, I've adjusted the recipe according to our taste buds and last time I made it specifically to click and post it here. For a chettinad based egg gravy check here .

- I wanted more gravy so added tomatoes while grinding.
- It serves as a best accompaniment for rasam / sambar too. Or you can have the gravy with rice too.
- This is little on the spicy side so adjust red chillies according to your spice level.
- Dont fry the eggs for long else it will turn rubbery and thats y I roasted it during the last stage.
