User Rating 3.5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


I have never met an eggplant I didn't love! Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. The nice thing is you can make it so many ways. This recipe is really easy and turns out a delicious dish that tastes great when served with hot Chapatis.


  • 10 baby eggplants washed, patted dry, cut into quarters and soaked in warm water
  • 3 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 2 large tomatoes cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 large potatoes cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped fresh coriander to garnish


  • In a deep pan, heat the oil on a medium flame till hot.
  • Add the cumin seeds and fry till spluttering stops. Add the onions and fry till soft.
  • Add the eggplant and potato and mix well. Fry for 2 minutes.
  • Now add all the powdered spices and the tomato. Fry for 2-3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle water on the vegetables and mix all well.
  • Cover the dish and cook till the vegetables are almost done. Check occasionally.
  • Remove the cover from the dish and stir. Cook till done.
  • Garnish with chopped, fresh corainder leaves and serve with hot Chapatis.
