Whole Garam Masala   - Each 2
Oil                                 - 1 tbsp


  • Chop finely Big onion and Tomato. I have used small green brinjals for the recipe. If you are using big brinjal, reduce the number to 2. Chop Brinjal into bigger pieces. 
  • Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot, add Whole Garam Masala. Whole Garam Masala includes cloves, cinnamon stick, star aniseeds, green cardamom and bay leaf.
  • Saute for a minute and then add chopped onions to it.
  • Cover with a lid and saute till onions turn translucent.
  • After that add Ginger- Garlic paste. Add chopped tomatoes as soon as the raw flavor of ginger-garlic paste goes off.
  • Add also Salt, Turmeric powder, Chili powder and Coriander powder. Cook in a medium flame with a lid till both onions and tomatoes are blended together.
  • After that add cut Brinjal to it. It will take around 10 -15 minutes for the brinjal to get cooked fully. Add Garam Masala Powder and switch off the flame after the brinjal is cooked well. 
  • Enjoy your Brinjal Masala with Chapathi/Roti of your choice.
