Alu Baigan

Rich in iron, Eggplant (Baigan) is a very healthy vegetable and is helpful in enriching the Hemoglobin of the body. It also helps in neutralizing the effect of excessive starch found in potatoes.


2 cups cut potatoes pieces, (about 3 medium potatoes)
6 cups cut eggplant pieces (1 large eggplant)
2 onions chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
1-inch piece ginger chopped
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. garam masala
5-6 tablespoons oil
Salt & Red chili powder - to taste


In a large corning casserole put potato and eggplant pieces.  Add salt, turmeric and red chili powder. Mix and microwave for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a nonstick pan and fry onions, cumin and ginger.  When onions turn gold, add tomato and garam masala. Cook until smooth.

Pour this paste on Alu-Baigan and microwave again for 2 minutes.

Comment I tried this recipe and found it works. The tomato was omitted as I am allergic to the combination of eggplant and tomato. But the result was to my liking. Thanks to the author.
