Today I tried begun bhaja, a delicious n delightful recipe of Bengali cuisine. One of my close friend who is a Bengali shared this mouth-watering recipe of begun bhaja with me. Her method was to deep fry sliced egg plants and then sprinkled it with salt and spices. I gave a twist to it to make it more crispy and tasty. And my recipe is like this …..

Rice flour – 1 table spoon
Red chillies – 1/4 tea spoon
Black pepper – 1/4 tea spoon

2. Rub the rice flour on both the sides of the egg plant slice gently.
3. Shallow fry them in a pan.
