( Serves 2)

My first post in this food blog is with an all time favorite recipe. I love eggs and this is a very simple and easy Egg recipe , which we also call as "Dimer Jhol"                  


 4 hard boiled eggs-shelled
 1 medium sized potato,boiled,peeled and cut into cubes
 3 green chillies
 3 tsp of mustard oil or any other vegetable oil
 1 large sized onion sliced
1 medium sized tomato pureed
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp turmeric 
1 tsp Dhania-jeera powder
1 bayleaf   
1 tsp kashmiri lal mirch powder
1 /2 tsp of garam masala powder( i use homemade garam masala)
Salt to taste


1. Take the hard boiled eggs and make slits. 
2. Coat them with turmeric, kashmiri all mirch powder and salt. 
3. Heat a kadai/ deep bottomed pan and fry the eggs in 1tsp oil for few minutes in low    
     flame. When fried nicely, take out and again put 1 tsp oil to fry the potatoes. Take out 
     when the potatoes are slightly fried.
4.  Add the remaining oil and add the bay leaf. When the oil is hot, add the sliced onion and 
     fry till it changes color and tuns slightly brown.
5.  Then add ginger garlic paste and fry for few minutes. Take care not to burn the garlic. 
6.   Next add the green chillies,turmeric powder, and the tomatoes. 7.When the tomatoes 
      soften and the oil separates from the sides of the masala , add dhania-jeera powder and  
      fry for few more minutes. 
8.   Now add the fried eggs and the potatoes and salt to taste and little water for gravy. 
9.   Simmer and let it boil.
10. Once the potatoes are soft, add garam masala.
11. Garnish with coriander and whole green chillies and serve hot with plain rice or chapati.
