About Aloo Baingan Recipe – Potato And Eggplant Curry

With a semi-dry gravy, Aloo Baingan recipe is a nutritious main dish made with potato and eggplant. It is perfect for everyday meals because it is so simple and quick.

The delectable vegan and gluten-free Aloo Baingan ki sabzi, or eggplant (aubergine) and potato curry, is Indian cuisine. One of the most popular vegetable recipes, it is commonly prepared in many Indian kitchens.

When served hot for lunch or dinner, the combination of a medium spicy, flavorful gravy and some chopped potatoes and eggplant pieces just tastes utterly delectable.

Instead of leaving the aubergines whole, we just slice or chop them for our baigan sabji recipe. After that, combine them with the seasonings and ground spices and continue to simmer on low heat.

Even with a basic vegetable oil like sunflower oil, the aloo baingan tastes fantastic. I used mustard oil in this recipe for this masala aloo baingan recipe.

Because potatoes take longer to cook than eggplant does, they are added first in the recipe.

Like any other Indian curry, this one is best enjoyed the day after it is prepared. When this Aloo Baingan masala sabji is heated the next day and served hot, the flavor is simply delectable.

Vegetables- We also need onions, tomatoes, and green chilies in addition to the main ingredients, aloo(potato) and baingan(eggplant).

Spices & Herbs- Basic common spice powders like coriander, turmeric, kitchen king masala, salt, Kashmiri red chili powder, and dried mango powder are what we’ll need.

Oil Because it tastes the finest in this semi-gravy sabzi, I prefer to use mustard oil when making it. You can substitute vegetable oil, olive oil, or even ghee for mustard oil if you don’t like its potent flavor.

Fresh Coriander – Don’t forget to finish by stirring in some finely chopped coriander leaves for extra freshness.

OtherWe will also require garlic, ginger, hing (asafoetida), and cumin seeds in addition to the components already specified.

Important Suggestions To Keep In Mind

  • The potato and eggplant should first be cut into homogeneous, medium-sized cubes. How does that assist? Vegetables cook more quickly and uniformly. 
  • As soon as the potatoes and eggplant are cut, immerse them in water until you are ready to use them. The simple explanation for this is to avoid oxidation.
  • Apple slices exposed to the weather and left uncovered have definitely caught your attention. Similar processes do place in some vegetables. Eggplants don’t become dark if they are soaked in water, especially salted water.
  • The final and most crucial piece of advice is to cook the potatoes first and then add the eggplant. On the cooktop, the root vegetable needs more time to cook.
  •  When you put both in the pan at once, you run the risk of getting a dish that is either overcooked or unevenly cooked.

Frequently Asked Question
