Dimer Shorshe (Mustard Egg Curry)

Total Time: 8 minutes

Serves: 2 to 3

Bengali egg curries are easy recipes anyone can make in no time and with no need for any special skills. Similarly, this Dim Shorshe recipe also calls for simple ingredients and just a couple of minutes to put together a hearty meal. No chopping and no elaborate preparations -  our recipe just needs a handful of ingredients thrown together in a blender with our 100% natural Cashew + Mustard sauce and then cooked with hard-boiled eggs.

Chef’s note: 

  • Making hard-boiled eggs should always begin with cool water. Bringing up the temperature of the water and eggs together helps in even cooking and prevents the eggs from cracking.

  • 2 green chillies slit in the middle 
  • 1 teaspoon of nigella seeds 
  • 1 tablespoon of oil 
  • 1 small onion pureed in the mixer 
  • 200 millilitres of coconut milk
