Begun Bhaja - My Version

So it is Navaratri and Pujo time and aromas of yummy festival foods have taken over the entire country. 

Though I love all festival cuisines, Bengali cuisine always gets away with a special attention from me. 

I have previously shared Begun Bhaja recipe here however, sharing a new version of it with a slight twist. 


2 big eggplants

1 tbsp ginger-garlic paste

2 tsp red chilli powder

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp coriander powder

Salt to taste

Juice of 2 lemons

2 onions, chopped

4 green chillies, chopped

1 ginger, chopped

4 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped

1 cup mustard oil

1 tsp garam masala powder


  • Clean the eggplants well and slice them in half inch thickness 
  • Marinate them with ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, salt and lemon juice (1 lemon) and keep it aside
  • In a pan, heat some mustard oil on a medium flame and pan fry the marinated eggplant slices till they are cooked
Your Begun Bhaja is ready to be served

Happy Eating :)
