  • Brinjal - 5
  • 5 Green chillies
  • pinch of Garlic paste
  • 1 large Onion
  • 1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds

  • How to Make Brinjal Bajji:

    1. Heat oil in a pressure pan and add the mustard and the cumin seeds.
    2. When the seeds splutter, add curry leaves, garlic paste, and finely chopped onions. Add salt to let the onions colour evenly. When they turn brown, add dhania powder, turmeric powder and asafoetida, and fry for a minute.
