Dim Kasha – Spicy Egg Curry

This week is dedicated for Pritha from Guilt Free , who is a journalist by profession. A new comer in the blog front, ( she has started blogging since February 2014 ) her blog is a delightful experience in terms of content and photograph quality.
I have tried one of her Egg recipe this time, which is a very common but extremely popular dish in Bengal. Its a dry curry, goes well with Roti / Paratha or even with Rice. Almost every bengali household has their own version of Egg / Dim Kasha, and all are equally delicious. Sharing the original recipe here
