Dim Sorshe / Bengali Egg Curry in a Silky Mustard Sauce

There was this one time when I was alone in the home and had a terrible urge to eat eggs. After giving it a lot of thought...I went into the kitchen and boiled 10 eggs. After that, I peeled those eggs, made 4 wedges of each of the eggs and sprinkled salt and black pepper over them. Carefully I placed them on a really large plate and started eating.  I ate almost 6 eggs and kept the remaining for making curries. I don’t make such attempts now...no matter how big the temptation is. But I do enjoy eggs in curries. And sorshe dim or eggs in a mustard based curry is one of them.

Eggs in a creamy and smooth mustard sauce are one of my absolute favourite after Dimer Kosha or Dimer Jhol. Besides this one is my husband’s favourite too as he loves anything related to mustard.
