Brinjal has a unique flavour that is enhanced by the masala used in this dish. Grind the masala fresh every time, for that tantalizing aroma! brinjal is rich in both calcium and folic acid, making this dish a nutritional treat too! the brinjal cook fast, so cook it for just one whistle to avoid overcooking.
