Ingredients

  • 4-5 eggplants/baingan cut into medium long slices
  • 2-3 medium size potatoes/aloo peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds optional
  • 3 medium size onions finely sliced
  • 2-3 slit green chillies
  • salt - to taste
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 medium size tomatoes finely sliced
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seeds powder
  • 1 cup water approx...
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves

Instructions

  • Firstly, cut eggplant/baingan into pieces, wash them, mix them with some salt and haldi and rest aside for 10-15 minutes which helps in removing strange baingan smell from the curry.
  • Take a pressure cooker or cooking vessel, into it add oil and heat it.
  • Add cumin seeds(optional).
  • Add sliced onions and saute them for few seconds.
  • Add slit green chillies and stir it until onions get soft.
  • Add salt as per taste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander seeds powder, ginger garlic paste, mix and saute well.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes into it, mix and cook for a minute.
  • Add the diced aloo/potatoes and mix well.
  • Add the baingan pieces, mix and cook the whole mixture for about 2-3 minutes by covering the lid.
  • Add coriander leaves, add little water and pressure cook for about 3 whistles on high flame or cook normally until the aloo and baingan get soft.
  • Reduce the steam and cook for few more minutes if there is any water remaining.
  • Serve it with roti or rice!!!

Notes

1.Additional spices such as garam masala powder too can be added.
2.Here I have added ginger garlic paste but some prefer to add only garlic paste or chopped garlic and go for it if that way is preferred instead of ginger garlic paste.
3.Few methi leaves too can be added if willing for a better flavor...
