Begun Poda

Begun Poda is a classic Bengali Recipe. Begun refers to Eggplant, Poda means roast and now you know why this dish must be such a favorite to many. Roasted eggplant is a delicious treat and prepared is so many different ways in different parts of the world. While I love all of those versions, this bengali style roasted eggplant - Begun Poda will always remain my favorite. It's comforting with steamed white rice!

Shim Beguner Chorchori

Crunchy flat green beans and creamy eggplant cooked with mild spices using potatoes for the perfect starch to bind it all together. Chorchori is one of those Bengali pure vegetarian dishes that my Mom would often prepare. Especially on the days in the week when we would eat just vegetarian food! While people may think that Bengalis are meat lovers, there are vegetarian dishes such as this that we equally enjoy. Chorchori can be prepared with different medley of vegetables. This Shim Beguner Chorchori is one of the most common combination used.
