Egg Ghee Roast doesn’t it sound just delicious, it is!
Roasts dishes are quite famous in South India in Mangalore and Kerala region and I love both the variations. I love cooking eggs in many different ways and one of my favourite recipes all time is my Egg Curry and Egg Masala so I was thinking of developing this recipe I was thinking of bringing flavours together from different parts of India. This Egg Ghee Roast ticks all those boxes!
This Egg Ghee Roast recipe is made with some delicious and deep spices!
When I create recipes, I think a lot about all these majestic spices from different parts of India. I reckon every spice brings certain nuance to the dish and makes it even more exciting! For this Egg Ghee Roast recipe, I used spices like the stone flower, mace and fennel seeds. Trust me the outcome was excellent! Some of the spices like the stone flower is a bit difficult to find so either you can skip it or add 1/4 tsp white peppercorns and burnt chilli. If you are over-ambitious, you can try adding just 1 drop of truffle oil just before serving it.
Egg Ghee Roast is delicious with rice, roti and my favourite dosas!
I served this fabulous Egg Ghee Roast with all these combinations and our favourite was with dosa. This recipe pairs excellent with dosas, do try it you will thank me! I made this recipe in my Golden Ghee and ah the flavours, the fragrance is outstanding.
