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.
Peyaj Mushuri Dal is a classic Bengali dal/dahl. It is mild on the tummy and gets a hint of sweetness from the caramelized onion. With just 5 INGREDIENTS, this masoor dal is a hearty starter to a Bengali meal. You can enjoy it like soup or pair it with some crispy fried veggies or fish and rice.
