Traditional Egg Roast of the South
A common Southern egg roast recipe is the Kerala-style egg roast which is also popular in other parts of the country. In a traditional Kerala breakfast, you may have appam, puttu, idiyappam, chapati or even bread with a lavish side dish of restaurant-style egg roast.
In Kerala, they call it the “Nadan Mutta Roast”, which can be made with chicken eggs, quail eggs or duck eggs. It is a celebrated egg dish because of the simplicity with which the flavours are incorporated. Many regions in Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Karnataka have their own versions, with very minor deviations from the traditional egg roast recipe.

How to Make Egg Roast
The most important thing is that the eggs need to be boiled, slit on the sides and then cooked with a masala base. Once prepared, the eggs soak up the flavour of the masala gravy and make for a satiating appetizer or main dish.
Make your own Egg Roast Recipe
Restaurant-style egg roast is easy to prepare and offers a flavoursome indulgence. However, you can always experiment with various other vegetables like mushrooms, carrots, spring onions, potatoes, and even add meat to the egg roast recipe. You may even want to use soy sauce or ground spices.
The beauty of eggs is that they can fit in with almost any style of cooking and taste preference. That’s why they are used in cakes, pastries, desserts, pies, sandwiches and a wide variety of savoury dishes.
You can also choose to break the eggs into the gravy, use half-boiled eggs or scramble your way to a dish that tastes awesome. Ultimately, the only limitation is your imagination. Feel free to experiment with egg recipes.
