I have been thinking of making this dish for quite a while. Whenever i go to supermarkets i buy a eggplant to make this, but i end up making this brinjal fry or this simple brinjal roast. Last week i bought this eggplant and immediately got into action and made it, i loved it so much and it turned out brilliant..
This dish is similar to baba ganoush, will share that recipe soon. You can serve it with roti or rice. You can even serve it as dip for chips or anything. Give this a try and let me know how it turn out..
Cooking Time : 35 to 40 mins
Serves : 4 to 5
Show the brinjal to open flame and toast it constantly turning it, the skin will get charred and cooked completely. Once it is cooked completely, remove it to a plate and let it cool completely. Peel the skin off and chop the brinjal into very small pieces.
Now heat oil in a kadai. Add in cumin seeds and let it splatter.
Add in onions and green chillies and saute till golden. Add salt if needed.
Add in ginger garlic paste and saute for a min.
Add in tomatoes and cook till it turns mushy.
Add in all spice powders and saute for a min.
Add in the cooked mashed brinjal and toss well.Cook this on low heat for 5 to 7 mins.
Add in coriander leaves and lemon juice. Mix well.
