Recipe is good. I was reading previous comments about the recipe. Though the recipe is good however I need to know how to chop curry leaves, it consists of a thin surface, so how come we could chop it with a knife as we can do to chillies, and onions.

I don't think Deem Kosha has any curry leaves in it. Infact use of curry leaves is minimal in bengali food.
