Kerala Egg Masala ~ Restaurant Style

Wondering where had I been lost? I myself is not sure ;-).  Had been lost in the woods? No, not in the woods thoughJ. We were on summer vacation for a month and half to my very own hometown - Kannur, Kerala. Had an awesome trip this time, with family and friends, good food and lots of travelling.  Time passed so fast, but the memories remain freshJ.

It had been a while we are back to US and everyone had adjusted back to the daily routine. It took me a while to restart my blogging episodes, as I was Indulge in our Association Onam programs. Had sleepless nights with arrangement of the programs, but again as I always believe your hard work will never go in vain. The results were amazing with 25 + programs and 200 + kids and adults participating in the program. I was so happy at the end of the program since everything went as scheduled in a very organized way.  Every single program turned out great, with lots of appreciation from everyone around.
So coming back to today’s recipe, I am posting one from the archives, which had been sitting there for long. Kerala Style Egg Masala ~ Typical Restaurant style. It pairs very well with Appam, Chappathi, Fulkas, Naan, Puttu, Dosa and even boiled Rice. Definitely give it a try and please let me know the results. Enjoy with your loved ones J
