Dimer Rezala/ Egg Rezala

Rezala is a rich creamy gravy. Rezala is mostly had in mutton and chicken. It is a gravy infused with rich and deep flavours of curd & cream. The luscious gravy is a typical recipe and side dish eaten in and around Kolkata. In this recipe I have tried to give this a twist in the rezala with eggs.

  • Now sauté the onion. Once its fried well add the ginger garlic paste, garam masala and the pepper powder.
