1. Some people doesn't like smell of onion for them, in non-stick pan, add 1 tsp oil and add cumin seed, saute onions, green chilies. Add mashed eggplant, coriander and mix well.
2. You can broil eggplant or bake it in oven.
3. Keep an eye while baking on gas top or oven or broiling or grilling. Rotate it time to time so it will cook from all side. ( FYI: messes up the cooking range)
4. Green chilies can be replaced by red chili powder.

  1. I add some tamarind paste and jaggery to the above recipe and believe me, it's heavenly. Also u can add fresh coriander or some finely chopped spring onions.
