Servings 4 People


  • 8 Nos. Quil eggs
  • 3/4 Tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
  • 3 Nos. Green chilly
  • 2 Nos. Shallots Chopped
  • Few Curry leaves
  • 2 Tbsp Oil


  • In a pan of water add quail eggs and boil for 15 minutes. When done, keep it aside for 5 minutes and deshell each egg. When you deshell the eggs, the shell interior is light blue in color which is normal. Keep the eggs aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onion, green chilli and curry leaves. Saute well.
  • When onion looks sauteed, add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt as required. Saute well.
  • Now add boiled eggs. Toss the eggs in masala quickly and sprinkle some water. When the masala oozes out oil in the sides of the pan, put off the flame.
  • Serve it with any main dish of your choice!
