Mutta Curry or Egg Gravy or Egg Roast goes out well with Toasted bread, plain bread, Idiyappam, Appam, Idly or Dosa. Also this can be served with any variety rice or pulav’s. I have made it to a semi-gravy consistency, if you need it to be more gravy you can remove it from the flame, when you get the right consistency. Let me share the recipe…

Indian Frittata


Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette with few more ingredients like veggies or meat or pasta, based on one’s flavor. The word frittata means “fried” which means the eggs are beaten fried in skillet with fried potatoes.

I have named it as Indian Frittata, since I have induced few basic Ingredients spices like chili powder, cumin powder and garam masala to flavor the frittata. This goes out good for breakfast. Let us move on to the recipe…

Egg On Toast


When I feel bore, tired, lazy or drowsy in a word “Out of mood”, I engage me in something which I like a lot. Found out some breads and eggs at home, started to prepare for my dinner. Thought of preparing a runny egg with the base of bread, and attempted the dish with both microwave and gas stove. Then one with the microwave was something runny and the other with the gas stove was completely cooked.

The dish was too good and I served it with Honey Glazed Sausage. Let us move on to the recipe…


  • Bread – 4 slices
  • Eggs – 4 nos
  • Pepper powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

  • Microwave version: Chop the butter to small pieces. Grease a baking tray with butter, place a bread slice, and break the egg on the top of the bread, gently prick the center of the egg yolk, sprinkle few pieces of butter over and along the sides of the bread and keep in microwave high for a min.
  • Frying pan version: Chop the butter to small pieces. Heat few pieces of butter in a pan, place the bread, break the egg over the bread, cook in medium flame for few mins, sprinkle little pepper powder and salt.
