About Egg Poriyal

Egg Poriyal is a South Indian version of Egg Stir Fry. I have already posted Egg Bhurji which is slightly a different version. Egg Poriyal or Muttai Podimas as we call it in Tamil is one of the easiest and quickest egg recipes that even beginners can also try.

Kids also love this with rice and rasam so I make it when ever I am busy and have no time to spare for an elaborate lunch. Muttai Poriyal or Muttai Podimas or Egg Stir Fry as it is called by various names goes well with rice, chapathi and can be used as a stuffing for sandwiches or rolls too.

This South Indian Egg Poriyal is different from the North Indian Egg Bhurji. This simple Egg Poriyal is very simple to try even for bachelors when they want a tasty meal in minutes.

Egg Poriyal Ingredients

  • Eggs – I have used brown / country eggs but you can use white eggs too. Make sure to crack open eggs in a bowl separately.
  • Tempering – Cumin seeds along with ginger, green chillies and hing are used. You can use curry leaves for tempering too. I have added at the final stage to make the dish more flavourful.
  • Spices – Turmeric powder is used. You can use sambar powder or red chilli powder or even garam masala powder to make masala egg stir fry.
  • Others – Onion, pepper powder are also used for egg poriyal.
  • Oil – You can use any cooking oil. I used groundnut oil.
