Egg Thokku | Boiled Egg Masala | Muttai Masala

Egg Thokku, a simple and delicious accompaniment made from the boiled eggs. It can be served as side dish for all types of pulao, biryani, meals or even with chapati/roti too. It's one of our favorite way of eating eggs and it's good for lunch boxes too. If you have followed my instagram page , you might knew that how many times i have packed this egg masala for ST's lunch box. So far he never get bored of this and keep on asking for making them whenever possible. One time, i shared quick story  on how to make this on my instagram page since few had  requested and now here is the detailed post for this simple dish.
Now coming to the recipe, if you have boiled eggs in hand, within 10 mins, this muttai thokku will be ready. Take your time and saute the onions well, that will give that nice color & taste to this masala. Here in today's recipe, i have used curry masala powder since i was preparing as accompaniment for my mushroom biryani. But when i make the same as accompaniment for sambar / rasam rice, i would go for sambar powder to spice it up. So it's really up to you, what flavor you're looking for and you can use the spices accordingly. Now let's check out the recipe.
