1 tsp - ginger-garlic paste

1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder

  1. Cut eggplants into long. A single eggplant may be cut into 4 equal sizes.
  2. Marinate with a little salt and turmeric powder for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Heat a little oil in a pan and start frying the eggplants.

  6. Remove them and keep aside.
  7. Add grated onions into the oil in the frying pan.
