How to make Bagarey Baigan

  1. In a pan dry roast peanuts, sesame seeds, dry coconut, cumin and fenugreek seeds, separately till an aroma is released and all of it is well roasted.
  2. Be careful with roasting coconut, roast it on a low flame so that it will not get burnt. De-skin the peanuts and then grind everything together into a smooth paste with some water.
  3. In another kadai, add 1 tsp oil, add the slit brinjals with top intact and cook on low flame for 5 to 7 minutes and then turn aside again to cook till done. Keep aside.
  4. Take a wide and thick bottom cooking vessel, add a tsp of oil, quartered onions and slit green chilies and sauté till light golden brown. Cool them down and grind into a coarse paste.
  5. Add 1/4 cup oil, after the oil is hot, add cumin seeds and curry leaves.
  6. After that add onion paste, sauté till golden brown and then add garlic ginger paste. Fry well.
  7. To that add peanut, sesame, dry coconut, cumin and fenugreek paste. Sauté well and then add turmeric, red chilli powder and salt. Sauté well and add water.
  8. Cover the lid and cook on a low flame for 15 to 20 minutes or till the oil separates.
  9. Add tamarind pulp and again cook for 10 minutes on a medium flame.
  10. Finally add cooked brinjals, cover it and cook for 5 minutes on a low flame. Sprinkle coriander leaves and serve warm.

My Tip:

You can adjust the consistency of the curry according to your likes by adding little more water for thin consistency or leaving as it is for the thick gravy.
