One of my most favourite beigan recepi. Even a brinjal hater will appreciate this nutty yummy dish. I am making this dish since my college time and it never failed to impress.
300-400 gms small beingan. cut and keep the base intact like we do for bharwa baigan, soak in salted water for 15-20 mins.
1/4 cup roasted peanuts,
1/4 cup coconut grated fresh or dried but fresh will give better taste.
1/4 cup white sesame seeds
1 lemon sized tamarind
2 medium size onions sliced fried lightly brown
8-10 garlic pods
small piece of ginger
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp dhania powder
1 tsp garam masala.
Roast the peanuts, coconut and sesame seeds separately without oil on low flame till light golden
Fry sliced onions in little bit of oil.
Now grind roasted peanuts, coconut sesame seed, onions, ginger, garlic into thick paste by adding little water.
Heat 1 tbs oil in a heavy bottom pan. add the prepared mixture and keep cooking on low flame until oil seprates.
As oil begins separating add the dry spices and cook for 1 minute stirring continuosly.
Add tamarind pulp mix well and add the brinjals.
Adjust salt, add some water and cook on sim until beigans are tender.
garnish with some coriander leaves. can be served with roti or rice.
