Rigan Na Palita Recipe: Much like Bengali begun bhaja, here the eggplant is sliced, seasoned with masalas and fried until it turns brownish in colour.
Monsoon Special: We bring you a special lunch combination - khichuri and begun bhaja - that will win hearts in no time.
What makes this aubergine dish a lip-smacking treat is of course the crisp outer slathered with spices and the delicate inner flesh which just melts in the mouth as you bite into it.
Neem-begun bhaja may sound unappetising but the dish just tastes delicious. It is a stir-fried recipe, made with neem leaves and eggplants - quite popular in a traditional Bengali household.
Beguni is a quintessential accompaniment with daal-bhaat, khichdi and even evening chai in almost every Bengali household.
