Notice: Spoon measurement : 6ml heaped

  • 1/2 spoon Cumin seeds (Aka Zeera in Hindi)
  • 1/2 spoon Red Chili powder (Aka Lal Mirch in Hindi)
  • 3/4 spoon Ginger powder (Aka Adrak in Hindi)
  • 1/2 spoon Fennel powder (Aka Saunf in Hindi)
  • 1/4 spoon Turmeric powder (Aka Haldi in Hindi)
  • 1/2 spoon Salt
  • 4 slim and long Brinjals
  • Oil for frying Brinjals and Red Chili powder.

  • The Brinjals should be cut into thin long slices.
  • Deep fry those pieces till they get brown. (You don't have to burn them)
  • In a pressure cooker, heat 2 table spoons of oil and put in cumin seeds.
  • After they turn golden put in Red Chili powder and let it fry for a few seconds.
  • Add the remaining powders, the Brinjals and 2-3 cups water to the same and pressure cook the mixture till the Brinjals get tender. Gravy should be kept minimum possible.
  • Serve hot with boiled rice.

Serves 2.

No, I haven't forgotten Onions, Tomatoes, Garlic etc. This Kashmiri style recipe doesn't require them, in fact, adding them will spoil the authentic taste of this Kashmiri style recipe.

    I looked up brinjal and learned it is what we call "eggplant" or "aubergine."

    I have a question.

    What do you mean by "small"? A small regular eggplant, which is still quite large to my mind, or the kind that my friend tells me are like fingerlings in comparison to the regular ones.

    Edited - Chilli has to be 1/2 table spoon, not 1/4.
