Egg Butter Masala

Egg is such a diverse food item we can make it in so many ways and the best part is that eggs are very easy to make. Today I am sharing recipe of Egg Butter Masala, extremely tasty and wholesome dish which makes anytime meal interesting. The specialty about this dish is in the way I have made the eggs. Instead of going the traditional way of making eggs in a pan I have made eggs in pressure cooker without using any oil so do try this new technique of making yummy omelets!!


4 Eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
5 tablespoon onion paste
5 tablespoon tomato paste
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon garam masala powder
1 tablespoon cream
4 tablespoon curd
1 tablespoon ginger & garlic paste
1 tablespoon egg masala powder
1 small bowl chopped tomatoes
1 small bowl chopped onions
1 chopped green chili 
2 tablespoon coriander leaves
1 small cup oil


1.       Break eggs in a bowl (2 full eggs and 2 eggs without the yellow part).
2.       Add ½ spoon salt, onion, green chili, coriander leaves and mix it properly.


3.       Pour the liquid in polythene bag and lock it tightly

4.     Now take some water in pressure cooker and keep this polythene in the pressure cooker and close the lid. After one whistle close the flame and take out the polythene from the cooker and keep it aside.

5.   Once it cools down remove eggs from the polythene and cut small it in small pieces.

6.    Now take a pan and heat the oil then put egg pieces in it and lightly fry them. Once they are little fried remove them from the pan.

7.       Now in the rest of the oil add onions and fry till they are light brown  in colour then add onion paste, tomato paste and ginger & garlic paste.

8.       Fry them a little and after few minutes add cumin powder, salt, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, curd and fresh cream and roast it till it is light brown in colour.

9.       When its become light brown add water ½ or 1 cup but don’t add more than that because then the gravy will not be thick.

10.   Add fired egg pieces in the grave and add egg masala and butter and cover the pan and keep in on light flame for few minutes.

11.   Serve your Egg Butter Masala with hot butter roti or butter nan.
