Chicken Masala-wrapped Soft-boiled Eggs

Tasty Team

Under 30 minutes

Under 30 minutes


for 5 servings

  • 6 eggs, divided
  • ¾ lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (300 g)
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup ginger (10 g), peeled
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon fresh coriander
  • ¾ cup flour (100 g)
  • 1 cup breadcrumb (100 g)
  • 4 cups vegetable oil (1 L), for frying


  1. Boil 5 eggs in boiling water for 5 minutes. Immediately transfer eggs to an ice water bath to cool. This will prevent the eggs from cooking further and will ensure a nice soft-boiled egg.
  2. In a food processor, combine the chicken, onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, chili powder, garam masala, and coriander, and blend.
  3. Peel the eggs.
  4. Press out the chicken mixture into 5 patties, roll the eggs in flour and wrap the patty around.
  5. Whisk the remaining eggs together.
  6. Roll the chicken-wrapped egg in flour, then egg wash, and finish in breadcrumbs. Repeat for each egg.
  7. Heat oil to 170˚C (325˚F) and fry each egg for about 5 minutes, until golden brown on all sides.
  8. Serve hot or cold!
  9. Enjoy!
