How to Make Baingan khatta mitha

  • Cut the brinjals lengthwise, with a thickness of 1 inch. Heat 2 tsps of oil in a pan and fry them till they are cooked. Remove and keep aside.
  • Remove the excess oil, retaining just 2 tsps.
  • Add mustard seeds, a pinch of turmeric, freshly roasted and crushed jeera, coriander and red chilli powder. Stir well.
  • Then add the sugar, the tamarind pulp and salt.
  • Check the seasonings and adjust, if necessary, to your taste.
  • Add the brinjal and a little water.
  • Cook for 3 - 4 minutes on low heat so that the gravy is incorporated well with the brinjal. Cover and keep aside for 30 minutes to cool.
  • Serve it as a side dish along with rice or roti.
