Dim Chorchori | Bengali Sliced Egg Kosha

Gluten Free

Another cheat dimer recipe from my kitchen, this egg kosha recipe in Bengali style has sliced boiled eggs stir-fried in a thick & mildly spicy gravy. Perfect as a side dish to rice or rotis, this is one of those quick Bengali egg recipes perfect for lunch.

All you need is to make a thick gravy of your choice, I prefer onion, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, and whole spices. A couple of hard-boiled eggs sliced in quarters and then cooked in the gravy. They will break off, thus thickening the gravy and adding more flavor to it. Finish with a sprinkle of freshly chopped coriander leaves for a hint of freshness.

Serving Suggestions

This super versatile Bengali egg curry goes equally well with rice as well as rotis or chapatis. However, you can also pair it with simple parathas for a delicious meal. To make the meal healthier you can add a side plate of salad or raita.

I, personally like some kind of chutney with such meals as well. When I am serving this Dim Tarkari with rice, I prefer something sweet like Tomato Chutney or Aamer Chutney. With chapatis or rotis, I like something hot and spicy such as Green Chutney made using Mint & Coriander leaves.
