Egg Malai Masala

Egg Malai Masala, is a spicy creamy egg side dish for Roti/Chapathi or any kind of Indian flat breads.

Malai means cream in Hindi language and this recipe uses milk to bring the creaminess into the masala.

If you would like to make it richer, you can swap with cream as well. But for me this tasted good and hence sharing this simple recipe with you all.

Egg Malai Masala

One may wonder, does the use of cream or milk make it spiceless ? not at all, it gets the heat of the spice from the green chillies.

Now you can make the same recipe into a gravy by stopping the cooking process at the desired consistency. For malai fry the egg needs a bit more time on the stove.
