Dimer Dalna (Bengali Egg Curry)

Dimer Dalna is the ultimate Bengali Egg Curry prepared with boiled eggs that are fried and then cooked with onion, potatoes, tomatoes and earthy spices. It tastes best with rice but occasionally I don’t even mind it with Indian bread on the side. Often this dish is prepared with duck eggs but I went with just our everyday favorite chicken eggs. The curry barely takes 30 minutes from start to finish and it’s a hearty comforting meal you will enjoy any day!

Doi Begun (Eggplant In Spiced Yogurt)

Sliced eggplant pan fried in very little oil and then layered with spiced yogurt followed by a drizzle of tempered hot oil! Doi Begun is a popular Bengali eggplant curry, except I make it little untraditional way. Typically yogurt will be cooked along with the spices and eggplant. This recipe doesn't call for that which makes it a very quick meal. It's light on the tummy and great on warm days too.

Dimer Kalia – Sweet Savory Bengali Egg Curry

It’s aromatic and it’s creamy! Dimer Kalia is a quintessential Bengali Egg Curry that has a lovely blend of sweet and savory. Bengali New Year is around the corner and I have a rich creamy curry to celebrate the day. Typically, on a special day like “Poila Boishak” (Bengali New Year), the menu always includes fish, mutton and ends with dessert. While I love fish and mutton, I just wanted to give an option to people who would like to a take slightly different route in building the menu. Also, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like egg curry. So,…

Spicy Egg Curry

I was singing to our baby ‘humpty dumpty sat on a wall…’ and Arvind goes “papa grabbed it fast enough, so it doesn’t fall …” Eh!! I looked at him with an exclamation mark hovering up my head. He as usual smiled, gave few eye gestures and ultimately gave up. ‘Egg curry for lunch?” he said, “Ohhh now I get it…” What can I say guys; I can be really dumb at times. We laughed out loud and our baby stared at us in utter shock! His big eyes turned bigger, mouth wide open; two tiny baby teeth in lower…

Egg Masala

Last week was one crazy, busy and fun week! Our friends were here from NJ and the whole week was all about parties, delicious food and too many late nights :) The weather was however, not too supportive. It was raining the whole week, bad storm and chilly winds. It made me wonder that if the winter was back again? Anyways, the weather forecast for this week looks good and may be, the rain will finally stop. I have a lot of catching up to do in the blogging world. I have missed a lot of recipes in the last…

Dim Shorshe (Creamy Mustard Egg Curry)

When you cook every day, mostly twice a day, it’s easy to get lost in the refrigerator, gawking and trying hard to get some kind of inspiration. It happens with me quite often, especially in the middle of the week. Even though I don’t plan the meals to a great detail, I still kind of roughly sort it out in my mind and do my grocery shopping accordingly. In spite of that, at times, I am out of veggies and out of ideas. Those days, I always ALWAYS go for egg curry. It’s like a routine!

Eggless Burger Buns

These Eggless Burger Buns are soft and fluffy with delicate crumbs. Homemade burger buns are the best and with summer vacation I will be baking these quite often. In this recipe and the video, I have mentioned details on how you can make these buns with very little amount of yeast. Yeast is a rare commodity these days and so you need to make it last longer.

Coconut Egg Curry

You know how people are crazy over chocolate and ice cream and can even fight for the last bite. Well, that’s how I am with eggs. I can never get enough of it and if given a choice, I can gobble it anytime and in any form. I am not sure if it was my favorite food growing up. But ever since I moved out and started staying alone, I figured that with eggs, there comes countless quick and filling lunch or dinner options.
