Prick few holes on eggplant/brinjal and place on flame*. Keep turning until charred and soft inside.
Collect the pulp. Discard the skin. Chop roughly.
Heat oil in a pan.
Add cumin seeds followed by onions, ginger and garlic. Fry for 3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, chillies, red chilly powder, garam masala and salt. Stir and fry for 2 minutes.
Turn heat to medium low and cook for 8 minutes or until tomatoes are soft.
Put the eggplant pulp. Stir and cook for 5 to 8 minutes.
Garnish with lemon juice and coriander leaves.
:- Serve hot with chapathi or paratha.
*If using flame, be careful. To prepare using an oven, preheat oven to 240 C or 475 F. Cut in half lengthwise and place them, cut side down on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the eggplants have collapsed slightly. Remove and after a while spoon out the flesh. Discard the skin. Chop them roughly.
Very tasty recipe.Thanks
i tried it!!! it was really tasty ...
Nothing wrong with the recipe, but it should be mentioned that a big brinjal is difficult to manage as far as cooking over a flame goes, as the insides take a very long time to cook. My stuff came out pretty good, after I added a pinch of sugar.
its really tasty.i have just prepared it.thx
I love this recipe...its awesome. I dont know how this recipe could get anything less than 4 stars....Hubby and I loved it !
this recipe was great! my husband loved it. not too hot at all...i didn`t cut up the chilies and this gave the perfect amount of hotness. maybe the others cut up the chilies which would def make it too hot. i also added some peas which tasted delicious. anyway, i will definitely be making this again!
I tried this recipe only bcos of its rating. I don`t know how did it get a good rating..!!! Its horrible..Don`t waste time to try it out.
