Baingan Masala recipes- side dish for chapatis

baingan masala After almost a week of heavy rains here, today its bit sunny. The rains and cold weather had made me really lazy and I found myself relaxing more than I wanted to. Also another excuse was that I had hurt my finger and after undergoing a minor procedure at the hospital, the doctor had advised not to get the fingers wet. So taking advantage of this, I had become even more lazy. I hardly cooked anything properly this week. I am planning make something good today. I hope I do it!!
I had made this baingan masala few days back. I get this small varieties of brinjal only in Indian stores which I visit only once a month. So I dont get to make this quite often. But it does tastes delicious and is always a hit at home. Heres how I make it.

Small brinjals- 5 to6
Onions- 1 big chopped
Tomato- 1(optional)
Ginger garlic greenchilly paste- 2tsp
Dried red chilly-2
Coriander seeds-2tsp
Channa dal- 1tsp
Til- 1tsp
Cloves- 2
salt to taste
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Oil - 3tbspn

Remove the green stalk portion of the brinjal and slit them twice. Rub little oil on them and fry them with 2tbspn of oil till the skin changes its colour. Remove and keep them aside.
Heat little oil in a pan. Add ginger garlic green chilly paste,cloves,cinnamon,dried red chillies,channa dal and coriander seeds. Then add the onions and saute for sometime. Then the chopped tomatoes .Saute for sometime. Grind together all the ingredients.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the ground mixture, then a pinch of turmeric powder,hing and salt. Add the brinjals. Cover with a lid and allow it to cook for 10 - 15 minutes till the brinjals absorbs the masala. Serve hot with chapatis.
