Definition

Bong equivalent of anda bhurji of the north and bread omelette of the south; sold in every chai stall (fixed or mobile) worth its money in Bengal. It consists of egg (deem) with chopped chillies and onions on a type on Indian bun (pav) and is best accompanied with a steaming cup of chai.

It also often serves as an alternate source of nourishment for office goers and starving students (especially the ones staying in hostels who can’t get themselves to have another meal of undercooked rice, insipid dal and vegetables mish mashed with mysterious condiments.)
