aloo baingan recipealoo baingan recipe | aloo baigan ki sabji | potato brinjal curry with step by step photo and video recipe. typically indian curry or sabji’s are mainly made with one vegetable as its hero ingredient. but there are few recipes which are made as a combination of vegetables which lead to unique flavour. one such easy and quick semi-dry curry is aloo baingan masala recipe with diced potatoes and brinjal.

potato recipes are very common across india and are perhaps one of the most sought vegetables for many curry recipes. having said that there are many curry recipes where the potato is used with the combination of other vegetables. brinjal or eggplant is one such popular choice where when combined with potato leads to a unique flavour. to be honest, i personally like the potatoes when cooked with brinjal and generally avoid eggplant when served. but its just me and you may like both as my husband prefers the other way. in addition to these, you can make this curry in a thick tomato and onion based gravy. thus making similar to any other masala curry recipe.

in addition, some tips, suggestion and variation to this simple and easy aloo baingan recipe. firstly, the size of the chopped potato and eggplant is very critical for this recipe and hence chop them to medium sized shape. it not only helps to cook the veggies faster but also helps to serve them. secondly, do not add both the veggies together to the kadai. add potatoes first and then add eggplant as the cooking time is more for potatoes compared to eggplant. lastly, you can experiment this recipe by adding other vegetables like carrot, beans, broccoli and cabbage. well, i would not call that recipe as aloo baingan but still tastes great when served with roti.
