Muttai (Egg) Kuzhambu

Once, when I was in my native, I saw my Grandma preparing this Kuzhambu very faster. My Uncle has started eating Chapati with some other Kuzhambu which was available very less. She quickly pureed the Tomatoes, chopped the Onions, beat the eggs, prepared and served him within minutes. This is the fastest Kuzhambu one can make.

She also prepares this Kuzhambu with boiled eggs and this is her recipe excepting for the addition of Garam Masala and Pudina. Sangee has posted a related recipe with Pudina Leaves. I tried the same and it came out really perfect.


Eggs 3
Onion (Medium) 1
Big Tomatoes 2
Pudina Leaves Few
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1tsp
Chilli Powder ½ tsp
Coriander Powder 1 ½ tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Garam Masala ¼ tsp
Cloves 2
Cumin ¼ tsp


Cut and puree the Tomatoes. Chop Onion into fine pieces.


Cook Eggs. Remove its shell and make a slight slit.

Heat Oil in a Pan. Add Cloves and Cumin. When Cumin splutters, add chopped Onions. When they turn translucent, add Ginger-Garlic Paste, Pudina Leaves and Tomato Puree. Boil till the oil separates.

Now add all the Powders and Salt. Fry for a while and then add a cup of Water. Boil till it reduces. Now add Eggs. Simmer for five more minutes.

Serves: 2
Serve with Biryani or Chapati.

Egg contains good amout of Protein. Linking this recipe to Sobha Shyam’s Cook It Healthy: Proteinicious Event, Signature Recipes of Saras’ Kitchen and Anyone can cook Series of Taste of Pearl City.
