Begun die Peyanjkoli Bhaja/Stir fried Onion flower stalks with Eggplant

Winter is knocking at the door. And when I saw this fresh bunch of ‘peyanjkoli’ at my local market, couldn’t stop myself from buying. It’s one of my favorite veggie during winter. Ma used to cook a very simple yet delicious stir fried dish out of this, what we called ‘Peyanjkoli Bhaja’ in Bengali. It’s an easy to cook recipe with very basic ingredients.
