Egg curry goes well with rice, paratha or roti. So, have it as a side with anything of your choice.

I love the smell of mustard oil, and so use it for making curries, those of you who don’t like it can also try preparing with sunflower or vegetable, in that case any oil of your choice.

Dimer Vada

This morning went to the nearby super market to get the vegetables and some other household articles. There in one corner was a huge stack of these double-yolk eggs. I couldn’t control myself and bought a whole dozen of them. While returning all through the street I was thinking of what to do with those eggs. For the special eggs there should be something very special.

Whenever my mom gets tired of living in the kitchen, she tries out all possible shortcuts for dinner. “Dimer vada” is also one of her shortcuts too. It’s so easy to cook, yet it’s the so tasty. I just love the smell of it from the kitchen. So today I thought of making that myself with the special eggs from the market.

 

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Potato (Aalu): 4 or 5 medium size

Egg (Dim): 3

Onion (Peyaj): 1 small

Green chilli (Kacha Lanka): 2

Turmeric powder (Halud guro): ½ teaspoon

Sunflower Oil:  1 tablespoon

Salt to taste

 

Preparation:

  • Boil the potatoes.
  • Slice the onion in very small square pieces
  • Mash the potatoes and add the beaten eggs to it.
  • Throw in the onions, chilli, turmeric pwder and salt.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan.
  • As the oil gets heated, make small discs out of your batter and fry.
  • Serve as a wonderful starter with tomato sauce or just have it as a side dish with dal on your dinner table.

 

Enjoy the great egg pakora. Catch you soon, till then happy cooking and happy eating.

Water: 2 cups

Salt to taste

Preparation:

  • Cut the potatoes into halves.
  • Boil the potato and the egg. Make the egg hard boiled.
