For the boiled egg masala

1/2 teaspoon peanut oil
1 teaspoon curry leaves, chopped
1/2 green chilli, chopped
2 tablespoon onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon red chilli flakes
1/4 turmeric powder
1/4 peri peri seasoning powder
1 small tomato, deseeded, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon coriander leaves, finely chopped
1 hard boiled egg

Other Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon peanut oil
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk or water


Heat a pan until hot. Add in half a teaspoon of peanut oil. To the hot oil, add in some chopped curry leaves. Add in some chopped green chillies. Add in some finely chopped onions and saute for a minute. Add in some red chilli flakes, turmeric powder, add some seasoning of your choice – I have used peri peri seasoning. My son loves this seasoning in everything. That spicy tangy flavour is his favorite. Now, add some chopped tomatoes. I have deseeded the tomatoes and chopped them fine. Make sure to remove the seeds from the tomatoes for this recipe. Also pick a ripe tomato that’s juicy. Saute for a minute. Add in the salt. Add in the coriander leaves. Finally, our chopped boiled egg. Mix everything well for a few seconds. Our boiled egg masala for the omelette is ready.

Take a bowl and break an egg in the bowl. Add some freshly ground black pepper to the bowl. Add in a little salt. Finally add in a tablespoon of milk. If you do not want to use milk, just replace it with water. It just works fine. Whisk everything well to combine. The little extra milk or water will help to keep the omelette fluffy.

Heat a pan, preferably non-stick. A well seasoned cast iron pan will work too. Just check if the pan is hot. Once the pan is hot, add in a little oil. You can also use butter or ghee if you like. Swirl the pan so the oil coats the pan evenly. Now, Add in the egg mixture to the pan. After adding the eggs, add in the boiled egg masala to the pan. Make sure to spread the eggs evenly on top. Let the eggs cook for a minute. After about a minute, flip the omelette so it cooks on the other side. Allow it to cook for 30-40 seconds.
After the said time, it’s time to flip again. And our egg on egg omelette is ready.

Transfer to a serving plate and our delicious avicha muttai omelette thattu kadai style is ready. Enjoy!!!
