Milagu Kuzhambhu

Milagu Kuzhambhu /Spicy Pepper Curry, is best to have, when you are affected by cold. Its hundred times better than your tablet's and vaporizing balm's.

Last four day's were decision making day's for us. we were to decide, whether to put our just 21 month old kid in play school? if so, in which school? Debates and discussions with neighbor's and friend's, all took up to a next level. The Responsibility. Last Monday, on a nice Muhurtham Day, We joined our Kid in a play school and he will be going to school from June 2nd Week. Day's are running fast, and our son is growing up, and our responsibility also mounts on.

Now Coming to Egg-Pepper Masala, this is also the one, that i prepare only, when we are affected my cold. and this is my favourite egg recipe too..

Pepper Egg Masala

Ingredients for Egg-Pepper Masala:

1. Shallot's-7
2. Saunf / Sombu-1/2 tsp
3. Corriander Leaves- fistfull
4. Pepper-1 tbsp (15 pepper roughly)
5. Garlic-3
6. Curry Leaves-8
7. Mustard-1/4 tsp
8. Oil-2 tbsp
9. Egg's -3
10. Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp


Have Shallots, Pepper, Saunf, Pepper, Corriander leaves, Garlic and a little water togeather and grind them into a thick paste, with very little water.

Boil egg's and remove its shell's, cut them into half and keep aside.

Now in a pan, heat the oil, add mustard, when it crack's, add curry leaves, the grinded paste and fry them well till the raw smell of the spices go off and the green color of the corriander leaves changes to dark green. add salt, turmeric powder and boiled egg's. mix them well. because of shallot's you wont feel the spicyness of 15 pepper's. if you want it to be spicy, add chilli powder and mix well. let them sit on slow flame for about 3 minute's.
