egg masala recipe is a dry egg masala which is called anda masala recipe in hindi.

A chatpata egg masala recipe of boiled and halved eggs cooked with onions, tomatoes and peppy spicy powders. The best part is that the mind-blowing flavour of this egg masala dry 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 anda masala has to be mixed very gently after adding the eggs, or they will break and spoil the flavour and texture of the dish.

Notes on egg masala. 1. Carefully drop the eggs into the deep non stick pan filled with some water. You can add little salt if you like. Remember the water should cover the eggs. 2. The cooking time of eggs varies depending upon the quality. A good indication of hard boiled egg is the appearance of a crack on the shell.
