Muttai Milagu Masala (Egg pepper masala)

This egg recipe is hot, spicy and full of flavour! The main ingredient is the black pepper powder and gives a very good taste.. a bit of chettinad style..

My favorite egg recipe and learnt this from my mom.. She makes a similar one with chicken too.. both dishes are equally good and are very authentic..

  • Eggs - 6
  • Onions - 1 medium
  • Tomato - 1 medium
  • Ginger/Garlic Paste - 2 tsp
  • Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander Powder - 2 tsp
  • Black pepper powder - 6 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp


  • Boil the eggs, cut them into half and set aside.
  • Heat oil in pan, season with Mustard, fennel and cumin seeds.
  • Add onions, ginger garlic paste and fry for a few mins..
  • Add half of the pepper powder, turmeric, corriander powder and chilli powder and fry with the onions for a few mins.
  • Then add tomoatoes and fry until the tomato becomes a paste.
  • Add 1/2 cup water, salt and cover it for a few mins in low heat.
  • When the onions are well cooked, add the egs and mix gently..
  • Add the remaining pepper powder and fry until the egg mixture becomes dry.
Goes well with Rotis as well as rice.
