Tips- Add salt when you are boiling eggs, its easy to remove the egg shell after boiling. This recipe taste better without much gravy. If you want more gravy do not add water, use thick coconut milk instead. Here only green chilies and pepper powder are used, don’t use chilly powder, it won’t suite for this roast. If you want to make more spicy increase pepper powder or green chilies. If you want you can use hen eggs too.
