Spicy Egg Curry | Egg Masala | Bengali Style

Today I want to share with you some special non-veg delicacy from heart of Bengal. As you know Bengalis are really fond of some specific Non-Veg items. So besides fishes they all love to eat egg preparations too. And that is the reason I want to share one authentic egg preparation from Bengal. Hope you will be liking it. My mom used to do this curry which is little spicy . And we loved to have it with warm plain rice .

One more thing to share about Bengalis ,there is a tradition in Bengal that they all like to cook any animal protein with some potatoes. Means we Bengali have a tradition to prepare any animals protein like fish,meat,egg, chicken with a combination of potato. Here is not an exception too. Actually here is a scientific reason to cook like this way. That is said, with any animal protein if you take one carbohydrate then it will be much easier to digest protein. And this is the main reason that Bengalis are using fish with potato,egg with potato,meat with potato and chicken with potato.

About Nutritional facts eggs are good source of day to day Protein elements. It contains essential amino acid  which is very supportive for human beings. And it is rich in Folic acid, vitamin A,vitamin B12 vitamin D,iron calcium and many more.
