Light, fragrant and full of flavours this biryani from the city of joy is an eternal favourite, especially so if you are and eggetarian. Boiled eggs and potatoes smeared in masalas, shallow fried and layered over a luscious base of basmati rice and masalas cooked in coconut milk. Garnished with fried onions and mint leaves take every Bengali babu’s word for this one being khoobbhaalo!
You should always stack your fridge with at least a dozen of them. Why? Handiest food to have around! Kids are hungry? Make some egg sandwiches. Guests come in, make an egg curry or egg biryani. You are hungry? Poach an egg and have it topped with stir fried veggies – perfect protein source for the body! Check the freshness – keep a raw egg in a bowl of water. Fresh eggs will stay at the bottom while stale eggs stand on end or float.
