  • Firstly roasted the brinjal/ eggplant/ baigan on the stove also roast the tomatoes. Once done let it cool and remove the skin.

  • Now in a cooking pot pour the cooking oil. I have used musturd oil as it adds a nice flavor so I have added the onions garlic and green chilly only after the oil gets smoked.

  • Now fry the onion till it turns translucent and after that mash the roasted tomatoes make puree out of it and add them.

  • Mix it well and then add to it cumin powder, corriander powder, red chilly powder and saltĀ  Mix well. Let it cooking for 7 mins.
