Aloo Baingan

A few weeks ago, I received an email from a loyal reader to post North Indian style sabzis to go with rotis. I got down to making one such recipe, Aloo Baingan, an easy to make North Indian dish. Brinjal and potato make for a fantastic combination and when roasted together in a perfect blend of spices, these vegetables are a match made in heaven.

Add another 1/2 tbsp of oil in the same vessel and saute the chopped brinjals for 7-8 mts on low to medium flame. Remove the brinjals onto a plate.
In the same vessel, add 1/2 tbsp of oil, once the oil heats up, add the cumin seeds and let them turn lightly brown. Add ginger green chili paste, asafoetida, turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder and 3 tbsps of water.
Add the chopped tomatoes and saute for 4 mts. Add the sauteed potatoes and brinjals to the tomato base and mix well.
Add salt and garam masala powder and mix. Add 1/4 cup of water, reduce flame, place lid and cook for 8-10 mts. Stir once in a while in between to ensure they don't stick to the pan or burn.
