Let the hard boiled eggs cool down before cutting them into longitudinal quarters. If the eggs are peeled while hot, the yolk will break and crumble.


The batter for coating should be beaten well. The batter will turn airy and fluffy. The coating will be crisp.

When the egg quarters are dipped in the batter before frying, take care to let the yolk part be on top so that it will not crumble or break while being coated. Lower the coated into hot oil after it is coated thoroughly.

How to Fry;

When the coated egg piece is lowered into the hot oil, take care not to put the ladle into the oil. Letter egg fry by itself well on one side; then turn it over and fry till crisp and golden brown.


Ajinomoto is generally considered essential for all 65 types of dishes. Do use it if you like it and if it is accessible. Ajinomoto definitely enhances the taste. I have used Aromatic Powder for the recipe here.

How to toss the eggs:

Dip eggs in spices and curds and toss on a high flame. That is the secret to get the Egg 65 right. Take care to toss and fry in such a way as not to break the eggs.

Food Colour:

Usually red food colour is added in the 65 dishes. You may avoid it if you’re not particular about it.
