Egg Pepper Fry - Muttai Milagu Varuval

Egg Pepper Fry Recipe
I tried this Egg Pepper Fry for a lazy day lunch and it turned out super good, spicy egg fry in few minutes perfect to pair up with rice, dal / rasam. I couldn't click pictures when I tried it for the first time as I was skeptical whether it would turn out as good to post it here but after that I made it twice in the same month so that justifies the post here :) If you want to make a simple lunch then this egg fry should be your first choice easy,quick and tasty too!!

Egg Pepper Fry Recipe

My Notes:

  • This is spicy fry so adjust spice powders if you want to reduce hotness.
  • Adding freshly ground pepper powder gives a great flavour.
  • This pairs well with phulka / white pulaos / or even with plain rice.
  • Do not overcook eggs as it will turn hard / rubbery.
  • If you want more gravy then add tomato puree after onion is fried.
