Egg Roast

4.8 stars from 8 ratings of Egg Roast

Egg roast is a popular dish from the state of Kerala which is in south of India. Kerala which has a tag line of “God’s own country” is a very beautiful state with lots of water and greenery. This state is probably is one of most beautiful state of India if not the most beautiful. Kerala had their cuisine that is mixture of three major communities which live there for centuries (The Hindus, The Muslims and The Christians)so their food has strong influence of all three major communities there. The Malayali cuisine ( as Kerala cuisine is knows) is complete cuisine and it is not only very easy to make but also very tasty. The ingredients are easily be available all over world and online too. Now why this dish is called Egg Roast is beyond me as the eggs are not roasted at all. In fact nothing is roasted in the Egg Roast. This dish is very much liked not only by adults but also by children and they love to eat it. I made it yesterday for the first time and invited 3 children from neighborhood , just to see if they like it and believe me they liked it so much that they ate enough which was like for serving 5 person. This dish doesn’t have too many calories and has lots of healthy ingredients so healthy and of course tasty. This dish combines the flavors of Malabar Coast with the spicy aromas from the plantation of Kerala.

      These hard boiled eggs sound like they would be very flavorful with all of the other ingredients. Interesting how it got its name since, as you said, nothing is roasted. Thanks for your recipe. Voted up, useful and interesting.
