  1. Cube the eggplant and potato. Keep them aside.
  2. Put a wok or kadhai on medium flame. Put some oil in it. Let it heat.
  3. Add cumin seeds, turmeric, asafoetida, green chilli and ginger paste. After the cumin seeds splutter, add eggplant and potato. Mix well again.
  4. Add coriander powder, amchoor powder and tandoori masala powder.
  5. Now add salt as per taste.
  6. Add sugar and lemon juice.
  7. Now put 1 cup water in it. Simmer the flame and keep it covered for 15 to 20 minutes.
  8. The potatoes and eggplant should soften.
  9. Turn off the flame and serve hot.

My Tip:

After you cut the vegetables. Make sure you wash them and then dip them in water just for hygiene sake. Make sure you scan the eggplant carefully so as to see if any worm is present inside.
