Eggplant/Brinjal Fry (baigan fry)


We had invited one of our relatives for lunch last weekend. I made baigan fry as a side dish. In the pic you can also see “bharwa karela” made by my mom-in-law. Will ask her the recipe and will post that too. But for now, it is “baigan fry”.


Eggplant-4 (medium size)
Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder-1-2 tbsp
Salt-1/2-1 tsp
Dry mango powder (amchur powder)-1/2-1 tsp
Red chilli powder-1/4 tsp
Oil (tastes best in mustard oil)-2 tbsp


-> Wash eggplant properly and cut into half (vertically).
-> Now make atleast 9 slits in the exposed side of eggplant (vertically and horizontally).
-> Mix all the masalas including salt in a bowl.
-> Now fill up the slits with the masala and also apply a bit of it on the surface.
-> Heat up oil in a skillet or pan.
-> Put the eggplants’ exposed surface on the pan and cover it with a lid. Cook on a low flame.
-> Now turn it on the other side.
-> Fry/cook till the masalas are cooked properly and the eggplants are tender.

All ready to be served as a side dish in your lunch or dinner 🙂
