Egg Roast

Egg roast/ Mutta roast is one among the favorite accompaniments for breakfast dishes in Kerala. This dish is very popular in thattukada's (street shops) as well. I love to have it along with bread. This dish is super easy to prepare and you will be out in couple of minutes from the kitchen. Each households in Kerala have their 
own recipes for egg roast. This is one dish which can be prepared in many ways. By adding coconut milk you will get a thick gravy . I have seen some people shallow fry the hard boiled eggs. Like I said each one has their own way of making it. I am penning down my way of doing it.
