Brinjal Bhajji

Brinjal is one of the most versatile veggies you can find... I feel you can do a lot of experimentation with this and you will rarely go wrong if you decide to play a bit with the recipe..

Here is what you need to make this version of Brinjal Bhajji

Brinjal - 2 medium sized round white and purple brinjal thinly sliced
Tomato - 1 large cubed
Onion - 1 medium sized finely chopped
Green Chillies - 3, slit into halves
Garam Masala - 2 tsp
Mustard - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt for taste

Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan
Add Mustard, when it starts spluttering add the urad dal
Add the green chillies
Add the onion and fry till onion turns pink
Add the tomato and garam masala and salt
Add 1 tsp oil along the edges of the pan
Fry for another 2 mins
Remove from heat and allow it to cool
Grind into a fine paste

In the meantime, heat 3 tsp oil in the pan
Add the sliced brinjal
Fry on low - medium heat covered till brinjal is cooked

Mix in the paste and add 1/2 cup water
Mix well. Cover and cook for another 10 mins on medium flame

Serve with Roti
