Kada Mutta Roast | Quail Egg Roast

Quail eggs are three times more nutritious than regular chicken eggs. The health benefits of quail eggs include their ability to improve vision, boosts energy levels, stimulate growth and repair, improves metabolism. These eggs are helpful to treat cough,sinus allergies and asthma treatment. This is the main reason that I started introducing in our family to improve kids immunity with the use of quail eggs. Kids have started liking these cute little eggs. This is a simple egg roast that can be made quickly and tastes delicious. Soft idiyappams with this egg masala serves as a yummy combo. If you like a watery gravy then add coconut milk to dilute the gravy and serve with it !!

Preparation time~15 minutes
Cooking time~ 20 minutes
Serves ~ 4 

quail eggs 8
savala / onion 2 big or 4 medium sized ones, sliced thin
thakkali / tomato 2 medium sized,chopped
inji / ginger 1 tsp chopped
milagu podi / chilli powder 1/2  tsp
kurumulakku podi /pepper powder 1/4 tsp
manjal podi / turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
malli podi /coriander powder 1 tsp
uluva podi(fenugreek powder) a pinch (optional)
curry leaves a sprig
salt to taste
coconut oil 2tbsp
sugar a pinch (optional)
coconut milk 1-2 tbsp (optional)


  • Wash and hard boil the eggs in water with a tbsp of salt(helps remove shells faster) for 10-12 mins or hard boil them in a pressure cooker. Remove from fire and transfer the boiled eggs in an ice water bowl. Remove the shell and make tiny gashes on each egg.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add oil. Slide in the sliced onion,chopped ginger and curry leaves. Saute until the onions turn translucent and is nicely caramelized.
  • Add the spice powders except garam masala on low flame, then add in the chopped tomatoes.Mix well.
  • Simmer and cover, cook for 2-3 minutes. Stir again till the tomatoes are mashed well.
  • Add the garam masala and boiled eggs,mix well. Add in the coconut milk (if using), a pinch sugar and give a quick stir.
  • Switch off flame and serve warm with idiyappam or chapathis or rotis.

* Adding fenugreek powder(uluva podi) adds a unique flavor. Add if you like feugreek(uluva).
* Adding coconut milk adds a sweet flavor,also gives a nice masala coating to the eggs. If you like a watery gravy, then dilute it with more coconut milk.
* I used the hot chilli powder but if you use kashmiri chilli powder will enhance the color of the masala.

I have never tried Quail eggs. I have seen them at stores, but was skeptical about the taste. Does it taste like chicken eggs? They look cute in the egg roast though :)
