Dahi Baigan

Ingredients to make Dahi Baigan

  • 10 Baby Brinjals
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Goda masala
  • dessicated coconut
  • 3 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 4-6 curry leaves
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic & green chili paste
  • Dahi (yogurt) 3/4 cup
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • Fresh chopped coriander
  • oil as per need
  • Crushed groundnuts

How to make Dahi Baigan

  1. Take 8-10 baby brinjals and cut into small pieces.
  2. Soak them in water with a little salt and turmeric. Keep them aside for 30 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in pan. Fry the chopped onions till dark brown, remove and keep aside.
  4. Add cumin, mustard seeds, curry leaves and let them crackle in the remaining oil in the pan.
  5. Add a paste of ginger, garlic and green chilly and saute.
  6. Add the brinjals pieces, mix well and saute.
  7. Add turmeric, chilli powder, Goda masala and Garam masala, saute for a few minutes.
  8. Add desiccated coconut and sprinkle crushed fried onions.
  9. Mix and add salt with 1/2 tsp sugar and 3/4 cup dahi (plain yogurt).
  10. Simmer on a low flame with closed lid and cook till brinjals are soft.
  11. Keep checking for the colour and consistency of the brinjal so that they are not overcooked.
  12. Garnish with chopped coriander, crushed groundnuts and serve hot.

My Tip:

The crushed groundnuts do the trick with the yogurt. The fried onions bring the flavors needed and your dish comes up among 10 others easily.
