Potatoes and brinjals are by themselves a great combo, but when flavoured with a special saunf based masala the duo gets all the more irresistible! The flavour of fennel can get very overwhelming when used in large quantities, but when used in the right proportions along with other flavouring ingredients like coriander seeds, ginger paste and chill powder, it imparts a really attractive flavour to the dish. Serve the Saunfwale Aloo Baingan hot and fresh, with a peppy garnish of finely-chopped coriander leaves, to boost its aroma and flavour much more.
