Dimer Dalna (Jhol) | Bengali Style Egg Potato Curry | Egg Recipes

Dimer Dalna, dimer jhol, aloo dimer dalna or Bengali style anda aloo curry or egg potato curry is one of the favorite potato egg curry with addition of freshly made panch phoran this egg curry is delicious and makes excellent meal with rice or paratha. This recipe can be made very quickly and if we have boiled eggs and potato in hand, i you like egg and spicy food then you will love this recipe.

I mostly make egg in curry so it's easy to have comfort lunch without much of work ;) and if egg will be as side dish then it will be either egg bhurji or omelette as those two are easy recipe and quick. And this bengali style anda aloo is very regular, I have taken pictures also few times but was not able to post it and this time finally I made up my mind that I have to share this delicious egg curry recipe with you all.


Highlight of this curry is the panch phoran powder and panch phoran which is used in most of the bengali cuisine is made with equal portions of cumin seeds, mustard seeds, fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds and nigella seeds we can mix all this and keep to use as required and also roast and keep some as powder add this panch phoran to any curry and it will taste delicious. Some people also add carom seeds (ajwain) instead of nigella or fenugreek but what I listed is the original panch phoran combination.


You can make this as only dimer jhol or dalna or dimer torkari ie without adding potato but potato and egg is wonderful combination which always works :) Try this and you will love this delicious dimer dinal with steamed rice.

  • Remaining panch phoran you can add to any curry of your choice.
  • You can also deep fry egg and potato pieces.
  • If you don't have mustard oil, it's fine use any vegetable oil. If using mustard oil make sure to heat it until smoking point otherwise oil smell will be in food.
  • The good red color comes from the chili powder and tomato paste, make sure to use good kashmiri color of red color and if you don't mind that color then it's fine.

Delicious and flavorfu Dimer Jhol.
