    4. Reheat oil and season with cumin seeds and a sprig of curry leaves.
    5. Add ginger-garlic paste and fry without burning.
    6. Add ground masala, powdered spices, ground onion and fry till masala leaves the pan and oil separates.
    7. Add the brinjals and fry for a few minutes, then add salt and tamarind pulp and sufficient water to cook the brinjals till tender but firm.
    8. Simmer till oil floats on surface. Serve hot or cold.
