Here is the recipe for a quick, easy and dry (subzi) preparation of eggplant/brinjal and potato in rich, spicy masala. It goes well with rice or roti.



Baingan Aloo Masala
(Eggplant/Brinjal Potato Masala)



Baingan Aloo Masala




Ingredients :

Eggplant (long, slender Asian variety)  3 coriander Powder 2 tsp
Potato 2 medium Garlic paste

1 tsp

Red Onion 1 large Ginger paste

1 tsp

Green chillies 4 nos Cilantro chopped

¼ cup

Turmeric Powder ¼ tsp Lemon Juice 2 tbsp

1 tsp


to taste

Cloves 8 nos Oil

2 tbsp


2 inch piece

Cardamom 3 pods





Preparation :

  • Wash and cut eggplant, potatoes and onion into 1/2 inch cubes.

  • Heat a little oil in a wide skillet. Add cumin seeds to it and let it pop.

  • Crush cloves, cinnamon and cardamom using a mortar and pestle and add it to the roasted cumin. Stir and heat for a few seconds till you get the smell of the cloves, cinnamon and cardamom.

  • Add the cubed onion and green chillies (slit in halves) and sauté till transparent. Now add the eggplant and potato (cubed). Sauté for 2 mins stirring well to prevent the veggies from sticking to the pan.

  • Add garlic paste, ginger paste, turmeric powder and coriander powder and stir well. Cover and cook till veggies are well cooked. Stir occasionally.

  • Once cooked, turn off heat. Add lemon juice and chopped cilantro, mix well and keep covered.

  • Serve hot with rice or Roti.




Note :

  •   To get a slightly sweet version of this, use red potatoes instead of regular potatoes. Skip the lemon juice and cilantro and add a little jaggery or sugar. This sweet version can be a little over-cooked and semi-mashed and still tastes good. This version goes best with roti.
