My theme for the fourth and final week of Blogging marathon# 22 is “Bookmarked Recipes” for this month’s themes. Today’s recipe is a Bengali dish that is a quick and easy egg curry for those days when there is little time to cook and the fridge is practically empty.

Recipe for this Dimer Dalna is from PreeOccupied. My post is also going to be quick and short, since we are at my cousin’s house for the weekend.

Bring water to a boil, turn off the heat, cover and set the timer to 13 minutes. Once done, remove the hot water and rinse with cold water. Peel and use)
