Potol Bhaja is a very simple classic Bengali dish that is served with daal at the beginning of the meal. It's crispy because of the seeds but as you bite, it is soft and tastes amazing. Growing up, I was picky with vegetables, but Potol was my all-time favorite.
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.
