Swati is a wonderful cake maker.Just as lovely Anamika , she also has a blog to show case her art of cake making. As she doesn't blog about Recipes she sent me her entry for VoW -Brinjal this month- along with the picture. She prepared Beguni using Brinjal . Beguni is Bengali dish ,which resembles to pakoda .
Here is the Recipe in her own words.
Garlic 1 pod crushed
Gram Flour/Besan 4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Red chilly pdr to your taste
Turmeric a pinch
Oil to fry
Cut the brinjal in thin slices.
Make the besan batter by mixing besan, chilli powder, salt, turmeric,
crushed garlic and water to get a batter which is like pakodi
consistency..Not too thick and not too watery. Beat well as then you
dont need to add soda which absorbs a lot of oil while frying.
Fry the brinjals coated in the prepared besan batter in hot oil . The
oil should not be too hot to burn the brinjal immediately as we need
to cook the brinjals also.
Sit back and enjoy the fried brinjals ...It goes well with khichadi
also..I like to eat them just like this when fried hot.
Thanks you Swati , that's a lovely snack/starter we have now with Brinjals :) .
