Doi Begun (Eggplant In Spiced Yogurt)

Sliced eggplant pan fried in very little oil and then layered with spiced yogurt followed by a drizzle of tempered hot oil! Doi Begun is a popular Bengali eggplant curry, except I make it little untraditional way. Typically yogurt will be cooked along with the spices and eggplant. This recipe doesn't call for that which makes it a very quick meal. It's light on the tummy and great on warm days too.

Baigan Bharta (Roasted Mashed Eggplant) Pizza

Don't get alarmed by the name.. give me a chance to explain. When I was working in Bangalore, every Friday, I and my friend had to work on this boring task of allocating resources to the projects. I am not going to go into a detailed explanation of the task but believe me when I say that for those few months, this was one hell of a friday job that made us go crazy at times.

Begun Bhaja

Begun Bhaja is a classic Bengali style fried eggplant. It is one of the most favorite and common dish prepared with eggplant. You can serve Begun Bhaja in several different ways. You can pair it with Khichuri (rice and lentil porridge), or with Luchi (fried bread) and my absolutely favorite is to enjoy it with rice, ghee and few green chilies on the side.

Macher Jhol Aloo Begun Diye

A very light Bengali fish curry, that doesn’t call for onion or tomato. Just potato, eggplant and few mild spices is all it needs to prepare this Macher Jhol Aloo Begun Diye. Macher Jhol translates to fish curry, aloo means potato and Begun is eggplant. This simple light variety of Bengali fish curry is one of my absolute favorite. We also add dried lentil dumplings (daler bodi) which brings an earthy flavor to the dish. Paired with rice, it’s a great summertime meal.
