It's a very very old recipe but has never lost it's place. Very easy to make and it goes fantastic with dal and rice. I remember when i was growing up my mom used to make this brinjal fry or ''begun bhaja'' as called in Bengali almost 2 to 3 times a week. The taste still lingers in my tongue. I made it today for my lunch and thought of sharing this wonderful recipe.
