Ingredients

Method
  1. Slit the brinjals, lengthwise, into four, but leave the stems on, so the eggplants remain joined at the stem. Keep aside.

For the coconut and sesame paste

  1. Combine the sesame seeds, coconut, peanuts, ginger, garlic and onions in a pan and dry roast them over a slow flame till the flavours are released and the ingredients are lightly browned.
  2. Add the turmeric powder, coriander seed powder, cumin seed powder, chilli powder and tamarind paste and grind it to a smooth paste using ½ cup water. Keep aside.

How to proceed

  1. Heat the oil in a deep bottomed pan, add the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and nigella seeds.
  2. When they crackle, add the brinjals, curry leaves and green chillies and sauté over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Remove and keep aside.
  3. In the same pan, add the coconut and sesame paste and cook till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
  4. Add the cooked brinjals, ½ cup of water and salt and cook covered over a slow flame till the brinjals are soft.
  5. Serve hot.
