Egg Korma

Egg Korma

Last Sunday, I had gone to attend a reunion with my school classmates. We tried to keep the party low-key and simple, instead of making it fancy. So we all chose to go for a picnic, where everyone would bring some home-cooked dish along with them. I had prepared Egg Korma. It is a dish originating from Bangladesh and is very popular in West Bengal. In this, the fried hard-boiled eggs are cooked in a delicious, creamy sauce redolent with aromatic spices. Nailing the gravy is important to obtain perfect Egg Korma. I have chosen to use both coconut milk (nariyal ka doodh) and coconut (nariyal) powder from my arsenal of secret ingredients. Coconut milk and cashew nuts (kaju) used in this recipe give a smooth and satiny texture to the gravy. Overall, the dish has a rich yet mildly sweet flavour courtesy of sugar (cheeni) and other aromatic spices. These spices can be added according to taste. Some vegetables like potato (aaloo) or cottage cheese (paneer) can also be added to make the dish more wholesome. The egg mixture should slowly simmer, with addition of sugar in the end. Egg Korma and chapatti make for an awesome duo. My friends loved the dish so much that there was none left for me by the time I went to refill my plate.
