Poached Egg Curry / Mutta Kuzhambu – Country Style!

Mutta Masala Puli Kuzhambu:


Eggs 4 large
Green chili 1 chopped
Garlic 7-10 cloves crushed
Ginger 2″ grated
Purple onions/shallots 1 cup chopped
Tomato 1 large crushed
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Tamarind paste 1/2 spoon
Coconut paste 1/2 cup
Cinnamon stick 1
Cloves 3
Fennel seeds 1/2 spoon
Curry leaves few
Oil few spoons.


Heat oil in a heavy bottomed vessel. Add the whole spices, followed by ginger-garlic, onions and tomatoes. Fry till fragrant.

Further add salt, turmeric, chili powder and tamarind paste. Add 2 cups of water and bring this to boil.

Once the gravy thickens, add coconut paste and wait till oil shows up on the top.

Now turn the heat to low-medium and break the eggs right into the curry, cover and slow cook…scramble them a little. Once the eggs are done completely, remove from heat.

Serve warm over steamed rice.
