A chatpata and masaledar subzi of boiled and halved eggs cooked with onions, tomatoes and peppy spicy powders. The best part is that the mind-blowing flavour of this subzi is achieved using everyday ingredients, which you don’t have to go hunting for!

So, you make this delightful Egg Masala on any day, to accompany your rotis , parathas or rice .One thing you need to be very careful about is that the subzi has to be mixed very gently after adding the eggs, or they will break and spoil the flavour and texture of the dish.
