THE METRONOME/ BLOG POST 29

I was introduced to Kerala cuisine by CB, my husband, who's from Kerala. Among the many delicacies that were part of my first Kerala meal, was the delicious Kerala Egg Roast which we had with Malabar Parottas! I have, over the years, tweaked  and simplified the recipe to suit our combined Bong and Mallu palates :)

SONG LYRICS : 

Mutta roast mutta roast, mutta roast mutta roast

Mutta roast mutta roast, all the way from the Kerala coast

Same number of eggs, tomatoes, onions unless bigger

Turmeric, chilli, salt and cumin, just a bit of sugar

Boil the eggs and peel the shells, make slits along the sides

Then fry the eggs until they're brown, drain and keep aside

Coconut oil is best for this, other oils don't taste the same

Add the cumin, fry the onions on a medium flame

Mutta roast, mutta roast, mutta roast mutta roast

Onions fried in coconut oil for a taste of the Malabar Coast

Mutta roast mutta roast, mutta roast mutta roast

Quick and easy and scrumptious eggs for serving when you're playing host

Add turmeric, chilli and salt, fry and fry and fry

Add tomatoes and the sugar, stir till almost dry

Coat the eggs with the simmering sauce, cover them up with the spice

Then let it roast on the slowest fire, turning once or twice

When the coveriing's caramelized, it looks and smells just right

The Mutta Roast is ready to eat, go on take a bite! 

Mutta roast, mutta roast, mutta roast, mutta roast

Eggs Kerala style with parotta, appam, roti or toast

Mutta roast mutta roast, mutta roast mutta roast

Quick and easy and scrumptious eggs all the way from the Kerala coast!
