Hello my dear friends and fellows! Welcome back to my space Dish Of Delight once again. I hope you all are enjoying Sunday with family and friends.

Today I am sharing a simple Bengali style egg curry recipe in which we first make egg omelettes and then use them as an ingredient in the curry. So let’s start with the recipe.


Eggs 6

Potatoes 2 medium sized cut into 1” cubes

Onion 2 and 1/2 medium sized ( 1 finely chopped + 1 and 1/2 sliced )

Tomato 1 small chopped

Green chilli 3 or 4 chopped

Garlic 3 or 4 crushed

Ginger paste 1/2 tbsp

Green chilli paste 1/2 tbsp

Bay leaf 1

Cumin seeds 1 tsp

Turmeric powder 1/2 + 1/2 tsp

Red chilli powder 1 tsp

Cumin powder 1/2 tsp

Coriander powder 1 tsp

Black pepper powder 1/2 tsp

Garam masala powder 1 tsp

Salt as per your taste

Oil 2 tbsp + 6 tsp + 1 tbsp


  • Divide the chopped onion and the chopped green chillies into 3 equal parts
  • in a bowl, break and add 2 eggs, one part each of the chopped onion and green chillies, add a little salt and beat well
  • now heat 2 tsp oil in a frying pan at medium flames. Once heated, add the beaten egg and fry the omelette. Make two folds to look like a flattened roll. Cut the omelette roll into halves and remove from the pan and keep aside in a plate. The omelette should not be over fried.
  • this way make the egg omelettes taking 2 eggs at a time. So there should be a total of 6 half pieces of omelette. Once done keep the omelettes aside in a plate
  • heat 1 tbsp of oil in a kadhai at medium high flames. Once heated, add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder, mix with the oil and then add the potato cubes. Fry these untill they turns golden colour. Remove the fried potatoes from the kadhai and keep aside
  • add the remaining oil in the same kadhai and once heated, temper it with the whole spices.
  • add the sliced onion and fry untill it turns golden brown in colour.
  • add the chopped tomatoes and stir and cook untill the tomatoes turn mushy
  • now add ginger paste, crushed garlic, green chilli paste and sauté the spices untill their raw smell disappears
  • then, add all the powder spices except the garam masala, salt as per your taste, about 1 or 2 tbsp of warm water and sauté and roast the all spices untill oil starts separating from them
  • at this stage add the fried potatoes and stir and mix well with the roasting spices. Keep roasting for one more minute
  • then add 1 and 1/2 cups of hot water and stir and mix well. Bring it to a boil
  • now reduce the flames to medium low and cover and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes
  • remove cover and give a good stir. Check and adjust the salt in the curry.
  • then add omelettes in the curry in a single layer. Do not stir. Reduce the flames to minimum and cover and let cook for 1/2 a minute
  • remove cover, gently flip the omelettes to the other side, spread the garam masala powder all over the curry and cover again.
  • Switch off the flames and let the curry rest for some time and then serve hot with steamed rice or roti or any dish of your choice.
