This is a very simple bengali recipe which goes well with rice, roti and parantha. It takes 10-15mins to prepare and tastes very good. One can cook it without having deep knowledge on cooking.

Recipe Tips

I usually like it to be li'l sweet sabji as most Bengali like it. But, one can leave sugar and add chilli powder and coriander leaves as another option.


This recipe is known as Dim-Begun. I am not sure if it is my Mom-invented recipe or a traditional one. My Mom use to cook it. and I learn from my mom over phone when I cam abroad and felt like making a quick sabji with brinjal.
