Kosha Dim

  • Things needed :
  1. Egg ( hard boiled ) – As many as you need. I took 8 eggs, so other ingredients are according to this
  2. Onion – 4 large ( chopped roughly )
  3. Tomato – 2 large ( chopped roughly )
  4. Ginger paste – 2 tsp
  5. Garlic paste – 2 tsp
  6. Cumin powder ( or paste ) – 2 1/2 tsp
  7. Turmeric paste ( or powder ) – 2 tsp
  8. Red chili powder – 2 1/2 tbsp
  9. Salt – as needed
  10. Cinnamon stick ( 1 1/2 inch )
  11. Green cardamom – 3
  12. Whole black peppercorn – 8-10
  13. Ghee ( Clarified butter ) – 2 tsp
  14. Garam Masala ( cinnamon powder+cardamom powder+clove powder in equal parts ) – 1 tsp
  15. Cooking oil – 4 tbsp
  • How to cook :
  1. Heat oil in a pan. Make a single small cut in each egg but don’t divide them entirely. This is to avoid possibility of  sputtering when added to hot oil. Fry the eggs lightly till they turn golden, remove from oil and keep aside
  2. Now throw in the cinnamon stick, peppercorns and the cardamoms in the oil, fry for 1-2 minutes, be careful not to burn them
  3. Add onion and fry until they become somewhat pink. It may take 4-5 minutes on high flame
  4. Add ginger paste, garlic paste, turmeric paste ( or powder ), cumin powder, red chili powder, salt and mix well and saute for 6-7 minutes or until the raw smell goes away. In this process if it sticks too much in the pan add very little water, be careful not to add too much water or else the spice mixture will not give the desired taste
  5. Now add tomato and crush them with your spatula, saute for 2-3 minutes
  6. Add the eggs and move them carefully to mix well with the whole mixture. Add ghee, garam masala and 1-2 cups of water. Cook covered in medium flame until you get a thick gravy. It may take 8-10 minutes

Remove from heat and enjoy with hot rice, roti , paratha or luchi or whatever suites you. Happy cooking 🙂
