Jalapeno Tomato Onion Egg Masala


This delicately spicy dish, serves very well with all kinds of breads. The secret to getting  the gravy really thick and just right, is to use a lot of onions. I’ve also used jalapenos in this recipe instead of green chilies for a slight twist. But it really doesn’t matter though. You could use any kind of green chili and still be happy with the outcome.

egg masala


6 eggs, hard boiled and shelled
2 onions, finely sliced
4 tomatoes, finely chopped
2 – 3 jalapenos (base it on your tolerable spice levels)
1tbsp finely grated ginger
1 tbsp finely diced garlic
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp roasted cumin powder
1/2 tsp kerala garam masala
salt to taste



  • Slit the eggs length wise, just sufficient to cut through the white, still keeping it whole.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add cumin, onions and sauté until golden brown.
  • Add crushed ginger, garlic, jalapenos and sauté until oil separates.
  • Add tomatoes, turmeric, kerala garam masala and sauté until oil separates.
  • Add boiled eggs and mix into the masala.
  • Serve with any kind of bread.
