  2. For the Marinade: In a mixing bowl, add besan and rice flour. Add curd and mix to make a lump free smooth paste. Combine rest of the ingredients mentioned for the marinade well. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove the brinjal slices from water and dry them gently with a kitchen towel. Marinate the brinajal slices in the masala mix and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  4. Place a tava on medium flame. Add few drops of oil and place the marinated masala baingan slices, with little gaps between two slices.
  5. Once the side touching the tava is cooked, in about a minute's time, turn the brinjal slices to the other side. Adjust the flame to low and ensure the masala does not get burnt.
  6. Once masala baingan slices is cooked on both sides, switch off the gas and transfer the masala baingan slices to a plate.
  7. In a bowl, whisk curd to make it smooth. Add salt and mix well. In a small pan, heat oil and add rai. When rai splutters add curry leaves and switch off the flame. Pour this tempering on top of the whisked curd.
  8. Mix the curd gently. Pour the curd on top of the masala baingan slices.

I love this. This is very healthy and can be served as Party snack...instead of dahi vada...this is very delightful! I add a bit of sugar too to the dahi!
