Mutta/Egg Aviyal

Mutta aviyal, again my MIL's another treasured recipe.Another interesting aviyal recipe with egg,potatoes and drumsticks.


Egg - 3 (hard boiled,shelled and cut into halves)
Drumsticks - 4 medium sized pieces (frozen)
Potato - 2 medium sized
Oil - 2tsp
Coconut- 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Garlic - 1 pod
Green chillies - 2
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - as needed
Tamarind paste - 1tsp
Asafoedita - a pinch


Grind coconut,garlic,jeera,green chillies,turmeric powder and curry leaves into a coarse paste.In pan, boil potatoes and drumsticks in tamarind water with little salt.Once the poatoes are almost cooked, add the coconut paste and let the dish boil and get thick.Add egg into this and mix slightly.In another pan, heat oil and fry mustard,urad dal,asafoedita and curry leaves.Pou this into egg aviyal.Serve hot with rice.

Tips: Put 1tsp of salt while boiling egg, this helps easy shelling of the egg.

the difference here is the tamarind water. That makes it uniquely different from the traditional Mutta Avial.
