Beguni or eggplant fritter or batter fried brinjal is a traditional Bengali snack. It is prepared by slicing the eggplants lengthwise and coating it with besan batter before being deep fried in hot oil. These fritters can be served as a snack or can also be served with rice/khichdi. The combination of khichdi and beguni is really famous. It is served as a bhog to Goddess Durga during Durga Puja. The flavours of this dish remind us of the approaching festival.
Durga Puja is finally here and the next five days will be full of fun and wonderful memories.
