What’s the first thing that pops up in your mind when somebody talks about South Indian food? Idli-sambhar? While some may add Vada, dosa and uttapam to the list. Considered as the signature dishes, these recipes are undoubtedly delicious and worth trying! Tamil Nadu is famous for its rich culture, heritage and extravagant chicken curries, parottas and sweet dishes like rava kesari, payasam et al, but not many of us know it has a lot to offer in the list of street-side snacks too. From Coimbatore’s famous roadside kalan and puttu to Kozhi Urandai (chicken meatballs), every nook and corner of Tamil Nadu has something to offer.
In this article, we are going to talk about one such street-side recipe – egg Kalakki or Muttai Kalakki. It is similar to egg omelette but yet so different that will leave you wanting for more.

Be it chicken korma, or mutton korma, you can use any type of meat gravy into this – unique to each one’s preference. So, without any further ado, let’s learn about its recipe.
