This is a very typical Bengali veg dish which you can only enjoy with steamed rice. We, bongs, have a very strong connection with 'posto' / poppy seeds and 'shorshe' or mustard seeds. We can creat so many delicious items with these two simple things. Now, 'he' is not a fan of eggplant, except fried version, to feed him this particular vegetable is really painful. I always have to make special dishes with eggplant, otherwise I end up eating all the eggplant and he finishes up rest of the curry, horrible ! So, last week I made this 'begun basonti' and do you know what happened ? He didn't make any fuss and finished up everything with a smile ... yaayy ! The taste of this eggplant gravy came out really good and I will make it again.
