Bengali Begun Bhaja
This is dish is almost akin to a litmus test, confirming if you would like most other Bengali Cuisines or not !
A relatively complex treatment to the simple Eggplant, that generally gets sidelined in form of sabjis or bhartas!
This recipe is the near closest match- based on my extensive taste tests and eating out in streets of Kolkata!and being invited to numerous Bengali Weddings!Did I mention it's a calorie bomb?!
It's served best with a side of Moong Daal, aloo Bhaja, Date-tomato chutney!
Try it and plz feel free to leave comment/ improvement suggestions!
