This a delicacy that is ideal for lunch on a cold winter’s day – a quick, hassle-free preparation of aubergines infused with the delightful favours of garlic and Mustard Oil. When you have a large number of guests in the house, this is a dish that you can serve up quickly and in large quantities. The ingredients are simple and actual the preparation and cooking doesn’t take too much time.
The ingredients that you will need are:
Aubergines (Baingan): 2
Mustard Oil: 2 tablespoon
Garlic (Lasan): 100 grams
Turmeric (Haldi) Powder: 1 teaspoon
Salt: to taste
Cut the aubergines into thick slices. Sprinkle with turmeric powder and salt; keep aside.
Chop the garlic coarsely.
Heat a little Mustard Oil in a pan. Add the chopped garlic and fry till it turns crisp and dark brown. Remove from the oil and place it on a paper napkin to soak up the excess oil.
Heat the remaining Mustard Oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergine slices one at a time. Fry till the aubergine slices turn into a rich golden brown colour.
Place the aubergine slices on a serving platter and carefully put a topping of fried garlic on each slice. Your dish in now ready – serve it hot. This is usually eaten as a side dish, but it can also be eaten with rice or roti. Either way – it’s delightful!
