  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
  • 1 teaspoon Red chilli powder
  • Required salt
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil


  • Shell out the boiled eggs and slice them into two halves.
  • Mix ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder and required salt. This is the marinade.
  • Apply the above marinade to the eggs on the yolk side.
  • Heat oil in a wide pan over medium heat and place the eggs in the pan with the masala-coated side in contact with the pan.
  • Shallow fry till you get a nice brown colour and change sides so that the eggs get fried evenly on all sides.
  • Sizzling masala egg fry is ready to be served with rice and rasam or as a starter.


Do not overcook eggs as they become hard and rubbery.
Adjust spices to suit your taste.
Adding ½ teaspoon of salt to the water while boiling eggs prevents cracking as well as making the eggs easier to peel.
