Egg Thokku – Spicy Egg Pickle

Posted by on Aug 17, 2012 in Egg Dishes | 5 comments

Egg Thokku or Muttai Thokku is a spicy dish where boiled egg is browned and cooked in a spicy onion tomato curry. Muttai means egg, thokku means pickle in Tamil. There are various methods to make this dish and this one is my favorite. Watch out for the spicy goodness and reduce the chili powder if you want it to be mild. You can serve this dish with rice or roti (Indian bread). I would say Paratha with egg thokku is the best combination. Enjoy this spicy egg dish at home.
