This recipe is inspired by baingan ka bhartha – roasted and peeled eggplant with spices. I was actually making bhartha, but last moment, I added a little twist to it by adding avrekaLu. It made a very tasty and quick side dish.
1 big eggplant
1/4 tea spn mustard seeds
1/2 tea spn red chilli powder
1/2 tea spn coriander seeds
1/4 tea spn cumin seeds
4-5 curry leaves
1/4 cup tomato
1/4 cup avrekaLu
Cook avrekaLu and keep aside.
Roast eggplant(like in this recipe). Peel the skin.
Crush the coriander seeds, do not make the powder very fine.
Heat oil. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves. When they are fried, add crushed coriander seeds.
Add tomato, chilli powder, salt and cook for few minutes.
Now add cooked avrekaLu, eggplant, cover the lid and cook for few minutes. Serve hot.
