Brinjal is a vegetable, in Bengali, people call which "begun" that means which has no quality ; but ultimately the fact is not that. It has various food values in it. Generally it is a vegetable which people like to eat as fry,but other than fry it can be used in so many recipes. Among them begun-posto (egg plant with poppy seed) is a tasty one. I can guarantee a vegetarian can complete his lunch with this menu only. Here, I am trying to give you  its taste. I am sure you must enjoy it.


  • 1.Brinjal/Begun - 2
  • 2.Posto/Poppy seed - 100gm(50gm is also allowed) paste
  • 3.Green chilly - 3/4 pieces
  • 4. turmeric powder - (very little) less than 1 teaspoon full
  • 5.Salt - as required
  • 6. Sugar - as required
  • 7.Corriander leaves - a little
  • 8.Oil - as required            


  • 1 Clean the begun/brinjal first and cut it into fairly thick slices.
  • 2. Fry those pieces lightly.
  • 3. Add the poppy seed paste to it and stir it in light flame.
  • 4. Now mix the salt, sugar, turmeric powder, corriander leaves and green chilly to this well.
  • 5. You may add a very little water to this curry and stir it properly to make it light fry.
  • 6. Stir it well so long as the oil can be separated from the curry but surely in light flame cooking must be done.
  • 7. Now the dish is ready to be served with rice, roti or paratha whatever you like.
