About Chok Wangun - Kashmiri style Recipe

Chok Wangun can be translated as Eggplant in Tangy Gravy. This simple and an authentic eggplant dish forms a part of the Kashmiri Wazwan. Was inspired by a cookery show so gave it a try. Please note that this yummy recipe has no onion or garlic in it. Cooked with only few dry spices, it tastes simply superb. Pair it with some Kashmiri pulao for a divine, wholesome and a satisfying meal.
