Egg Chutney-International Egg Incident

Egg wha?? I hear you say. Yes you read right.This is presenting egg chutney with crouton sticks.

No other international party so far has been this tough for me. Till 2 days ago I seemed to have drawn a blank! Egg seems to be a well-explored ingredient and I couldnt think of anything unique for the party animals. Then voila, I remembered an old recipe that my childhood friend had passed on to me. So I called her up and revived old memories attached to the recipe.

Egg chutney can be used as a dip or as a spread on a sandwhich which can be included in a school lunch.
1 egg
2cloves of garlic
1/2inch piece of ginger
1/2tsp of mustard powder
salt and pepper to taste
fresh cilantro

  • Peel garlic and ginger and crush in mortar.
  • Chop onion and tomato.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard powder.
  • Throw in the chopped onion, crushed ginger-garlic. Saute.
  • Add the tomato and cook.
  • Crack an egg and scramble. Add the fresh cilantro.
  • Cool the mixture and puree.
  • Serve with crouton sticks.

I have a 5 year old tester...(picky eater this one)
...who certifies it as "yummy"

This recipe is a winner at the MasterChef India 2 Blogging Contest.


  1. egg chutney?what?
    i think is a yummy dip, i read the recipe and i know all about...thanks,shirley,very creative!

  2. Way to go thinking outside the box with this challenge! Sounds delicious.

  3. Mmm... this sounds interesting! Smart eh!

  4. An egg chutney is a very unique idea, sounds great with ginger addition!

  5. Kids are often the toughest critics I think - if this was certified as yummy by a five year old then I certain it was exactly that!

  6. Great spread, and the colour is beautifully deceptive - doesn't make you think egg!

    The recipe is similar to an Australian dish from the middle of last century - Mock Chicken - though is missing the cheese component. It's still a staple sandwich spread at many Bowling Clubs and country fairs.

  7. Egg chutney! This is the first egg chutney that I've come across. Great idea. Idea for next house party.
