How to make Dahi baingan- Brinjal recipes

     I haven’t cooked anything great lately , neither experimented on any new dishes nor baked anything interesting except a dates cake for a get together and a cherry cake with some fresh cherries I bought recently which did not turn out that perfect to find a place in this blog. But of course , I have been cooking some interesting side dishes for rotis and so don’t be surprised to find a series of side dishes coming up in my future posts.Coming back to the topic, there are a few culinary experiments like the cake I mentioned above and a hummingbird cake I baked for my birthday which tasted good, but did not look that great to fit into the blog. The same was the case with today’s recipe dahi baingan. I was not sure,everyone would like eggplants cooked this way along with yogurt. I did not have any idea of posting it,it did not look very appealing to me. I did take the pictures though with disinterest. But when my hubby appreciated it and even my son liked it, I thought, why not? I guess many would love this one. As I always say, try it , taste it, love it!!!

How to make Dahi baingan- Brinjal recipes Yum

  1. Marinade the sliced eggplats with some salt and turmeric powder. Place them on a pan and shallow fry them by pouring some oil on the sides of the slices. The slices should be cooked well and appear a light brown in colour.
  2. Beat the curd well. Add some coriander powder, red chilly powder, chaat masala,cumin powder and garam masala .(Add some salt if required). Mix well. Add the slices in the curd and mix well. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
Recipe Notes

     You can have this as a side dish for chapati or as a raita for rice varieties.

Optional- I also added some kasuri methi to the curd along with the other spices.
