Bhapa Dimmer Malai Curry (Steamed Egg Curry with Coconut Milk)

Malai Curry is an authentic Bengali delicacy and is made on occasions. It's a gravy dish. It’s made with big size prawns. Here I have twisted the recipe with steamed eggs. You can enjoy this dish with hot steaming rice. 

For Steamed Egg
8 Eggs 
1 Onion chopped 
1 Green chilli or as per your requirement chopped
1/2 tsp Ginger paste
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Milk
2 tbsp Coriander leaves chopped 

Break the eggs in a bowl. Add the salt, onions, green chilli, ginger, coriander and milk. Beat the eggs. Grease a plate or idli moulds. Pour the beaten egg on the plate or in idli moulds. Steam the beaten egg. Once done cool it down and cut the steamed egg into cubes, if you have steamed it in a plate or remove the dim bhapa from the idli moulds. Keep it aside while making the gravy. 

For the Gravy
Dim Bhapa
1 big size Onion paste
1 big size Tomato paste
1 tbsp Garlic - Ginger paste 
2 Green Chillies slit
1/4 tsp Garam Masala powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp Chilli powder 
3/4 tsp Cumin powder 
1 tsp Sugar 
Salt to taste
2 Cloves 
2 Green Cardamom 
1 small piece of Cinnamon 
2 Bay leaves
1 Dabur Coconut Milk pack
1/4 cup Mustard Oil 
1 tsp Ghee

Take oil in a wok, heat it up to a smoking point. Reduce the flame. Add the bay leaves, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom. Let it crackle. Add the ginger - garlic paste, stir for a minute. Add the onion paste, continue to stir, add the green chillies, continue to sauté, add the sugar and salt. Sauté the onion till it changes it's colour. Add the tomato paste, stir and add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and cumin powder.  Continue to sauté till the oil releases from the paste. Adjust and add water as per your requirement for the gravy, as I wanted thin gravy, I added 2 cups of water and stirred it. Let the gravy simmer for 2 minutes. Add the dim bhapa and cover the wok. Cook it for 2 minute. Remove the lid. Add the coconut milk, stir and cover the wok and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the lid. Add the  ghee and sprinkle the garam masala powder. Switch of the flame. Serve the Bhapa Dimmer Malai Curry with hot steaming rice.
