Spicy Egg Curry / ডিম কষা


This is one of my favorite midweek curry so far. When you don't want to spend too much time in kitchen but still want to have something yummy, then this spicy egg (also called anda) curry is life saver. As you all know 'kosha' means slow cooking with oil and spices. I know what you are thinking - 'slow cooking' on weekdays? When the main ingredient is egg, then yes you can make this Egg Kosha in a jiffy! It goes best with rice, but you can also have it with roti or paratha. Try this recipe in your kitchen and let me know how it turned out for you.
