  3. Add tomato, garlic paste (#1), curry leaves to the pan and cook till tomatoes become soft.
  4. Add the masala’s to the pan and saute. (if needed, coconut oil can be added).
  5. Drop the eggs into the pan and mix it well with the mixture.
  6. Cover the lid for 5 minutes in a low flame.
  7. Add water, salt, garam masala and cover it with the lid.
  8. Cook for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Serve hot with appam, idiyappam, porotta or pathiri.


  • Use low flame for #4. It will prevent masala from getting burned.
  • If you need more spicy, add chilly powder and garam masala. You can even add it in step #7.
