Doi Begun Recipe (Bengali Style Fried Eggplant In Curd Gravy)

Doi Begun Recipe is a mild flavoured Bengali Style Eggplant in Curd Gravy. Usually, not much spices is added into the dish and made by blending the spices into a yogurt based gravy and cooking the fried brinjals along with it. Though traditionally these brinjals are deep fried, you can shallow fry them with less oil. Flip each slice  to the other side when you notice that the eggplants are fried on one side and cook further till the other side is done. This delicious dish has the wonderful aroma and texture of these fried eggplants/baingan and the sour tinge of yogurt spiced with green chillies.

Serve Doi Begun Recipe (Bengali Style Eggplant in Curd Gravy) along with a meal of steamed rice and Bengali Luchi Recipe (Traditional Bengali Style Fried Puffed Indian Bread), along with Choto Aloor Dum Recipe (Bengali Style Baby Potato Stir Fry) on sides.
