Eggplant Masala

Dear all, Today I am going to Share with you Eggplant Masala.This is some kind of easiest Subji which I made usually.But I must say you that its so tasty that once you made then you will have to make it very often.

In Bengali Eggplant is called "BEGUN".If you split it it is like BE-GUN which means "No Value" or "NO Quality" at all.In simple words eggplants have no Nutrition value. I am not sure about this too.Because Nowadays Nutritionist are saying that Eggplant has full of Anti-oxident Properties which help you to protect from the Cell Damage.So May be This is actually a Myth That Eggplant has no Nutrition Value.But obviously Nutrition value will depends on that how You are cooking this one!!! If you cook it spicy then it has less value otherwise its good for your heath.

But its true we like to cook and eat.So somedays it will be spicy and some days its healthy.So what matters? Cook and Eat as you wish :) There are so many recipes we have to make with eggplant in Bengal.I will share with you definitely once. But this is some kind of different one.Little spicy also.Usually I made it with Mustard oil.And You know,any spicy menus like non-veg items goes to extreme fit with the Mustard oil.Anyways this simple but Spicy Eggplant goes very well with warm Rice as well as Roti also.
