About Egg Tawa Fry Recipe

Egg tawa masala or as we call in the desi term “anda tawa masala” is a quick, simple Indian protein-rich dish made with eggs, spices, onions and tomatoes.

This is one of our go-to breakfast recipes that we often like to serve with toasted bread.

Apart from having it with bread, this anda tawa masala can also be had with paratha, and roti and can also be relished as a side dish with dal rice or sambar rice.

Egg tawa masala is popular across Indian households and also served on streets of India with butter-loaded pav (Indian bread).

Egg fry recipes are prepared all over India with lots of variations and every home has its unique way of making this dish.

Sometimes, boiled eggs are used, sometimes whisked eggs. Whatever the version it may be, you are going to love this dish.

The best thing about this egg fry is that this can be served at any time of the day. You can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and also can be carried in lunch boxes.

The dish comes together in under 20-30 minutes.

This easy healthy protein-rich dish is a simple combination of eggs cooked in flavourful onion-toamto masala that is spiced with Indian herbs.

This is a nourishing and filling dish bursting with flavours.

This rustic way of cooking this dish looks very appetizing.

I have added just onions and tomatoes here, but you can add extra veggies too like bell peppers, broccoli, and spinach to enhance the nutritional value of this dish.

You can also use canned tomatoes here instead of fresh.

Eggs – To make this egg fry, I have used 4 eggs. Instead of adding whole egg at a time, you can also whisk the egg and then spread it over the masala.

Vegetables – We will need 3 onions finely chopped and 2 tomatoes. You can also add bell peppers (capsicum) if you like.

Spices & Herbs – Basic spices such as red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala and black pepper powder is used along with salt for seasoning.

Also, we will need, a teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and green chillies.

Oil – I have used oil here, but feel free to use butter. This fry tastes amazing when done using butter.
