Begun Bhaja (Fried Baingan)

Ingredients:(Serves 4)

  • Begun (Aubergine/ Eggplant/ Brinjal) 1 no. big, or 2 nos. small (which makes 8 pieces of ½" each)
  • Besan (Bengal Gram Flour) 4 tbsp.
  • Cooking oil as required for deep shallow fry
  • Salt to taste


Pour 2 cups of water on the Besan and mix well. The consistency of the mix should be lighter than that of a cake mix. Add salt and mix once again.

Slice the Begun into ½" thick pieces.

Heat oil in a pan. Dip the Begun slices into the Besan mixture to coat it fully. Fry the coated pieces in oil in medium heat till golden brown.

Nanz's Tips:
  • You may add 2 tsp. posto/ khus khus (poppy seeds) and ½ tsp. red chili powder to the besan mix to make the Begun Bhaja tastier.
