Kaada Mutta Roast / Quail Eggs in Spicy Masala


Do you know that a single Quail egg has 3-4 times nutritional value than a chicken egg?

We love quail eggs. The fact that its very low or almost negligible in bad cholesterol and its high  nutritional contents makes this speckled beauty a real winner .

Quail eggs are available mostly in Asian grocery stores here in North east, but i got this batch from Shoprite ....

There is nothing fancy going on with the recipe here other than my usual shallow frying of hard boiled eggs in a spoon of oil just like I do with Naadan egg roast. This is a tomato less prep and if you are that stubborn to have a dash of tomato , my advice is to use a tiny spoon of tomato paste . Quick but not dirty :)  Here goes the recipe for a gravy-less yummy side dish for chapati .



Recipe for Naadan Kaada Mutta/Motta Roast/ Quail Egg Roast 

Ingredients:-
Quail Eggs ( Hard Boiled ) - 10-12 (Or if you prefer ordinary eggs , use 4 -5 eggs)
Oil - 1 tea spoon

Onion thinly sliced - 2 medium
Garlic sliced - 2 cloves
Red chili powder - 3/4 table spoon to 1 table spoon ( adjust as per your heat level)
Turmeric powder - a large pinch
Garam Masala - 1/2 tea spoon
Crushed peppercorns - 3-4 
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds
Salt to taste
Oil


Heat 1 tea spoon oil in a pan and fry hard boiled quail eggs for 2-3 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.( this step is truly optional)
Add some more oil to the same pan and add mustard seeds. when they pop up add curry leaves and fry for 30 seconds.
Add sliced onion and garlic and fry for 7-8 minutes. I don't like my onions in egg to be well sauteed , so I fry it only for 7-8 minutes max.
Bring the heat to simmer and add red chili powder , turmeric powder and garam masala.
Saute well for a minute or 2 or till they are fried.
Sprinkle 2-3 table spoons of water and salt to taste and mix well
Add fried Quail eggs and combine well and increase the flame to medium and fry for 3-4 minutes , stirring continuously , but without breaking the egg.
Sprinkle 3-4 crushed pepper corns and let stand for a minute and switch off the flame.

Serve hot with chapati or Poori....

quail is listed as an endangered species in Karnataka..so never had the chance of making them in B'lore. I think it is available here in SG..

I never tried quail eggs. But your presentation is perfect. I loved the bowl and the recipe is an easy version.

Deepa Praveen said...

I have never tried quail egg this way..I follow the same procedure for my egg roast with small variations..
Like first make some knife marks in the boiled egg and just twist it in (chilli+pepper+salt+jeera powder paste- the paste will be too watery).
I will try quail egg soon

Hi Sarah... This is my first visit to your blog. You do have a nice space here. Interestingly, we share the same name as well as the love for quail eggs. In fact, I've made a similar egg roast (minus the shallow frying of the quail egg and the garam masala) :)
