Easy Mutta Aviyal (EGG Medley)

This is a dish I love since my childhood, which my mother make in a hurry when she has little time to make elaborate dishes for  our  lunch box. I almost forgot about this dish and now , after more than  10 years passed  was just thinking to cook something for  my hubby, who is an egg lover  . Suddenly The Great, Simple , and easy Egg Avial  came to my mind....
