Mutta Roast (Egg Roast) is a very tasty preparation which will go with Appam, Chappathi or Porotta. This recipe is taken from an edition of Vanitha Pachakam. This Egg Roast is a recipe from Kalpakavadi Inn, Thottappally near Alappuzha in Kerala.

My note: I come from a place called Cheppad near Alappuzha which is also near Thottappally. So this taste is quite similar to all the mutta roasts I have eaten in my life :)
