How to make Hyderabadi Dum ke Baingan

  1. Slice the long aubergines vertically, if using small brinjals, then slit the brinjals without disjoining them. Sprinkle some salt on brinjals. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and fry the aubergines till they are half cooked, remove and keep aside.
  2. Alternatively you can spray/brush some oil on the aubergines and bake on a greased tray at 180 degrees celsius for 12-15 minutes.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan and add the all the dry spices except for onions, ginger and garlic, fry the spices till they become aromatic.
  4. Add ginger garlic paste, let it brown, add onions, and turmeric and fry the masala for 4-5 minutes on a low flame.
  5. Add ¼ cup hot water.cook until the water evaporates and the oil separates from the masala.add the fried or baked aubergines in the gravy.
  6. Add salt and vinegar, stir carefully. cover tightly and cook on a low heat for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Serve dum ke baingan hot garnished with coriander leaves.

My Tip:

Adding more onions will result in a fuller gravy, but you'll have to increase the other spices to maintain the balance in the dish.
