While the traditional Mughlai baingan masala uses whole brinjals, we have chopped it to make it easier to cook and consume. Enjoy this delicacy with rice or your favourite roti.

The use of readymade tomato puree adds a rich aroma, taste and hue to this preparation. The hints of fresh cream complete this sabzi and add to the richness of Indian style spicy baingan musallam.

Tips for baingan musallam. 1. Make brinjal cubes just before frying them, else they will turn black due to oxidation. 2. The onions have to be sautéed till they are golden brown in colour. The onions will turn soft on sauteing. Do so on a slow to medium flame. 3. Do not chop the tomatoes finely. Chop them into big pieces for a good mouthfeel.

Apart from the above ingredients, I added diced capsicum to the masala and let it cook for some time before adding the Brinjals. It turned out to be very good. Thanks for this recipe.
