Andhara style egg fry recpies please
Okay , tasty , need to improve the taste . I need more types of egg fry recpies . Can you please send me
Easy , tasty
I hope you are well. Sorry if this question sounds stupid, but when you say “fried gram,” what type of gram are we supposed to use? Split chickpeas? Whole chickpeas? Do we simply fry them in oil? Thanks for the help!
Fried gram is available in the market as Roasted Bengal gram also referred as Dhalia.
You don’t need to fry them in oil. Its a product like puffed rice but with lentils.
You can ask for Dhalia/Dalia in Indian grocery stores and you should be able to get it as its a pretty common ingredient used in Indian households.
Could you suggest marination ingredients/process fo r Mutton…should simply peel off the bone after cooking…Haven’t found one till todate…Cooked mutton MUST be soft…
Hi Suguna, Your recipe’s are simple and cleanly laid out. I tried yellu podi, avarai kulambu & masala egg last weekend and loved it. I have started to follow your site and have been making couple of dishes in the last few weeks. After reading about you, I am infact planning to buy a Wusthof knife myself 🙂 I am a coimbatorean, but currently in US. Being a fellow coimbatorean I appreciate and relate to many of your dishes and tastes. You are doing a wonderful job. Congrats and my heartfelt wishes.
Thank you Sathish Kumar Kathirvelu. Really glad to know that you like the recipes. I love knives. I am sure you will like it too. I sharpen my knife in a sharpening stone (whetstone) once in 4-6 months. Its been more than 10 years old and I love it. For daily use i use a sharpening steel (rod) to keep it sharp. Thank you!

Dear Kannamma aka Suguna Vinodh (yeah sorry in my mind Kannamma has registered long before i got acquainted to the “about me”). I am a regular visitor to your site. Began with the discovery of the impeccable Idly maavu recipe. Since then i have enjoyed your posts and ofcourse attempted quite a few including the absolutely delicious version of Vendakkai Puli Kuzhambu.
You are one of the few food bloggers i avidly follow. Measurements that dont fail and of course room for slight tweaking and creativity as well.
I am always busy grabbing a recipe and running off the site to make it. Today i thought enough is enough; i ought to stop and tell you that you inspire me and i am sure many others too. Thank you for constantly sharing wonderful recipes (lovely nah… delicious photographs). The posts are a wealth of information. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your kind words Poornima. It means a lot to me. You made my day!
As an egg lover and a big fan of Indian cuisine I keep on learning, I’m thrilled to find this recipe! Since I always have a couple of boiled eggs in the kitchen (just in case…), I already see it as an easy weekday dinner after I come back from the office or a lazy Sunday brunch… Thank you so much for inspiration. I’m really glad I’ve found your fascinating blog!
Excellent recipe My all time favourite. I add ground cumin which gives an unique flavour. Keep rocking with more and more of unique recipes.
Thank you Kalyani. Yeah Cumin has a very unique flavor. Glad you liked it!
