Baingan Bharta, Japanese Eggplant Saute, Eggplant Tikka Masala & Brinjal Stir Fry) coated or dipped in a masala batter and fried should not at all be discounted. Deliciousness mind you. In fact utter delicious crispiness and soft melt inside and the marvelous aroma of spices. Obviously, as the name of this fried brinjal has indicated, Bengali Begun Bhaja is part and parcel of Bengali cuisine I quite know it as well (Bengali Fish Curry). Plus, I must quote other recipes too (Sukhi Aloo Sabzi, Punjabi Sabut Moong Dal, Aam ki Achaar, Tamatar ki Chutney, Shahi Gobi & Tari Wale Aloo). Therefore? God! I don't know when else to say except please tuck into Bengali Begun Bhaja (Cauliflower Fritters & Kurkuri Bhindi).
