Begoon Bhaja - Bringal Fry - Bengali Style

Honestly speaking, i'm not a great fan of this vegetable called Bringal..nor does anybody else at home prefer it..Hence its very difficult to convince everybody to eat it..The only type bringal preparation at home is "baingan ka bharta".

As you know, I've been brought up in Kolkatta, many of my recipes are adapted from Bengali dishes.. however this one is a changes required..and tastes awesome..i love it and its extremely simple to make..this one can be eaten just everyday..


1 big purple bringal
2 tbsp mustard oil
1 tsp turmeric powder
Salt as per taste

1.) Wash and cut the brinjals into half inch round slices.
2.) Apply salt and turmeric powder and set aside.
3.) Heat the oil in a frying pan, add 3 or 4 pieces of bringal at a time and fry on both sides until brown and crunchy.
4.) Serve hot with steamed rice.

Sneek Peek:

PS: I've used slender purple bringal's here, which taste good as well, however, the best taste is obtained only by using big fat bringals and mustard oil. Many people don't prefer mustard oil, however, the authentic flavour is retained only by using mustard oil!!!
