Egg Pepper Fry / Spicy Egg Fry Recipe / Egg Fry


Egg Pepper Fry is a spicy, delicious masala curry recipe made with eggs. It has a very distinguishing pepper flavor from the addition of black peppercorn and other spices. It is a semi-gravy that works absolutely well as a side dish to any variety rice or chapati, dosa.

Black Pepper Powder is one the essential and key ingredients for making this spicy egg curry recipe. Masala is made from Chopped Onions & Tomatoes cooked to a mushy consistency. Other spice powders like red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder & turmeric powder are also used. The onions should get to the translucent golden-brown stage while frying them on low flame. Similarly, the tomatoes should be cooked to a mushy consistency and only then the gravy will come together really well. The spice powders should be cooked on low-medium flame for not more than a minute or two, to take away the raw smell but at the same time if cooked for long, it can burn them affecting the overall taste. The pepper fry masala is also flavored with  Fresh Curry Leaves and Ginger Garlic Paste. Always drop the eggs into the gravy, do not disturb immediately for this egg pepper fry recipe as it coats the eggs properly and makes the masala fry flavorful. Finally make in to pieces before serving.  Black pepper is considered healthier than chilies, as it has many medicinal properties too. Apart from providing heat to the dishes that it is added to, it does not cause any internal damage unlike chilies. The heat from black pepper hits a bit slowly and that also makes it work the best to flavor side dishes! In this egg pepper masala, although a lot of other Indian spice powders are also used, one can taste the black pepper powder distinctly. For plain and simple rice recipes like Veg Pulao or Biriyani, this egg masala tastes brilliant.
