Caramelized Onion Egg Roast (Mutta Roast)

Caramelized Onion Egg Roast

Onions are something that I hate to deal with. Always makes one cry! But caramelized onions are everything! Egg Roast this way  has been a game changer. Though the onions are not fried like that which is done for biryani, for the egg roast, the onions are sautéed in Coconut oil until the onions turns caramel brown in shade. The onions turn caramel when the water content  from the onions evaporate and you are left with a slightly sweet caramelized onion. 

I have always hated the Mutta (egg) roast that we get in hotels, as the onions are always almost uncooked with chunky pieces. Ever since, I have been preparing egg roast this way that requires a bit more time than usual egg roast and I must say, it is lip smacking good.

In this recipe, I make a version where I don't add water. But you may add water if you want more gravy like for chappathi etc.

The gravy base is quite simple and made with staple ingredients like ginger garlic paste, green chilli, tomato and spice powders in which your boiled eggs with 3 slits goes into the gravy and is allowed to smear in the gravy which gives the eggs a chance to penitrate in the gravy and gives the eggs a yellow tint. This delicious gravy can be enjoyed with any roti or puris. I like to pair mine with Vellappam (using fermented rice batter).

Ingredients :

  • 5 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 4 Onions, sliced thin
  • 2 sprig Curry leaves
  • 2 Green chillies, slit
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste 
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder 
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kashmiri Red chilli powder 
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Fennel seed Powder 
  • 1/4 tsp Garam Masala Powder 
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper Powder 
  • 1/2 tsp Sugar (Optional) 
  • 5 boiled eggs, slit
  • Salt, as required 

Instructions :

  1. In a clay pot, pour in coconut oil and sauté the thinly sliced onions with salt. 

  2. Add your curry leaves and sauté until the onions caramelize and not burn (mix well every minute) and keep the flame on medium low. 
  3. Next add in ginger garlic paste and green chillies. Sauté well. 
  4. Next add in your chopped tomatoes. Mix well and close lid. 
  5. Now add in your spices like Turmeric powder, chilli powder, Coriander powder, Fennel seed powder, Garam masala powder, and black pepper powder and saute well. Check for salt, if required. 

  6. If you think the gravy is too dry, add 1/4 cup of water and allow to cook for 2 minutes. 

  7. Finally add in your boiled eggs, mix and cover and cook well for 2-3 minutes until the egg coats well in the Masala. 
  8. Enjoy with puri, chappathi, appam etc! 😋😋
