A comforting form of Begun Bhaja, Gol Muchmuche Begun Bhaja goes amazingly with Rice-based dishes.


Units Scale
  • 1 Eggplant/ Aubergine/ Begun/ Baingan
  • 1 Tsp. Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp. Red Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp. Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt

  1. Rinse the eggplant thoroughly with running water.
  2. Remove and discard the stem.

  4. Cut one medium-sized eggplant into 4-6 long, medium-thick sections.
  5. Next, sprinkle turmeric powder, red chili powder, sugar, and salt onto the eggplant slices, and gently massage the spices into the flesh.
  6. Allow the marinated eggplant to sit for 15 minutes before frying.
  7. In a pan, heat oil over medium-high heat.
  8. Begin frying the eggplant, ensuring to cook both sides until they turn crisp and achieve a light brown hue.
  9. Remove the fried eggplant from the pan and drain any excess oil.
  10. Serve the Lomba Dantiwala Begun Bhaja alongside hot steamed rice and dal.


  • I refrain from using wheat flour when preparing Gol Begun Bhaja. The thickness of the Eggplant alone provides the desired crunchiness, eliminating the need for flour.
  • While Red Chili Powder is not mandatory, I personally opt to include it in order to achieve a well-balanced flavor. It is worth noting that some households do not incorporate chili powder in their recipe.
  • Similarly, the addition of sugar is not obligatory. However, caramelized sugar enhances the crunchiness of the Begun Bhaja and contributes to a harmonious flavor profile.
