Laziz Baigan!


Eggplant can be made in several ways and they all turn out good. A friend of mine taught me this recipe and although it takes some time to cook, it comes out really rich and tasty.


Eggplant (Baigan), cut into thin slices.

Chopped Onions, Tomatoes & Cilantro

1 tbsp yoghurt

Use Cumin seeds, Kalonji, Haldi, red chilli powder & dhania masala for seasoning


Sprinkle some salt on the thinly cut & washed eggplant slices and let it settle for few minutes while you cut your onions, tomatoes and corainder. Dry the eggplant slices and shallow fry them.

Pour little bit of oil in a separate wok and season with cumin seeds and Kalonji. Saute the onions and tomatoes together for couple of minutes and add salt, haldi, red chilli powder and dhania powder to taste. Mix in the yoghurt and a cup of water into the wok and let it cook for couple of minutes. Wipe the extra oil from the fried eggplant slices and add it to wok, along with the chopped coriander. Cover the wok and cook for few minutes.

Serve it with your choice of bread and enjoy!
