BAINGAN BHAJA (Eggplant/Brinjal Fries)

I never liked eggplant/brinjal or any of its dishes before my marriage. I always knew how to make different eggplant dishes but barely tasted them. Unfortunately… naah..actually, fortunately I got a husband who likes eggplant a lot. He made me discover its actual taste and now I am really in love with many of the eggplant dishes. This recipe is one of my personal favorites. It is a traditional dish of Bengal (I am not a Bengali though..) but I like to make some variations in the conventional recipe.

Preparation Time: 40 min.

Cooking Time: 20 min.

Serves: 4


  1. Large eggplant(baingan/brinjal)-1
  2. Garlic paste-1 tbsp
  3. Ginger paste-1 tbsp
  4. Red chili powder/ Paprika-1 tsp
  5. Turmeric powder-1 tsp
  6. Mustard powder-1 tbsp
  7. Coriander powder-1 tbsp
  8. Corn flour-1 tbsp
  9. Roasted gram flour - 2 tbsp
  10. Salt to taste
  11. Oil for frying-1 ½ cup
  12. Chat masala-1 tsp
  13. Vinegar - 1 tbsp
  14. Tomato slices - 4-5
  15. Dried mango powder - 1 tsp
  16. Mint leaves - 2-3
  17. Ranch or white sauce -1 tsp


  1. Wash the eggplant and cut it in thick slices.

  2. Now take a big bowl and put garlic - ginger paste, turmeric, chili, coriander powder, corn flour, roasted gram flour, salt, vinegar, dried mango powder and 2 tbsp of water. Make a smooth paste and rub it on each eggplant slice. Keep it aside for 30-40 min to marinate.

  3. Heat a frying pan with oil. Place 4-5 slices in heated oil. Fry them each side till they turn to golden brown.
    If you are calorie conscious, want to avoid oil/fat, and/or do not want to eat fried dish then you can skip the frying step. Instead of frying, heat a flat pan and grease it with 1 tbsp oil. Place 4-5 slices in pan. Cook them on medium heat for 7-8 min each side or until they turn to golden brown.

  4. Keep fried eggplant slices on kitchen paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  5. Place them in a serving plate. Sprinkle chat masala over fried slices, garnish with tomato slices, ranch and mint leaves. Serve it as a side dish.
