Kosha Dim

Kosha literally means 'Bhuna'. Onion/ginger/garlic paste ... fried well in oil. Dim is egg. :-)

Need : Boiled eggs, onion/ginger/garlic/tomato paste, haldi powder, a pinch of sugar,red chilli powder, 2 tbsp cooking oil ( I used mustard oil), garam masala powder, salt to taste.

How to : Heat a little oil first. Add the boiled eggs and fry them a little with a pinch of haldi powder and sugar. This gives a colour to the eggs and also the skin turns slightly crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
Now add the rest of the oil and the onion paste. Add the haldi powder and red chilli powder and fry well till oil seperates.
Add some water and the eggs (make a little cut in them so that the masala enters) and keep stirring till all water evaporates.
I had some boiled aloo .... completely crushed one and added it to give a little body to the gravy.
Sprinkle the garam masala and cover for some time.
Goes great with hot rotis / parathas. Also can be had with khichuri (khichdi) too.
