Eggplant – 4, Japanese variety

Oil – for deep frying

Kalonji ( Onion Seeds) – ½ tsp

Saunf ( Fennel Seeds) – 1 tsp

Jeera ( Cumin Seeds) – ½ tsp

Haldi – ½ tsp

Green Chili – 2-3, finely chopped

Ginger – 1 tsp (roughly crushed)

Garlic – 1 tsp ( grated)

Diced tomatoes – 2, 8oz cans

Salt – to taste


  1. Dice the Eggplant into 1” cubes. Deep fry them and keep aside.
  2. In a separate wok (Kadhai), heat 1 tbsp oil, put in the Onion Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Cumin Seeds and Mustard Seeds.
  3. Once the Mustard Seeds splutter and the Jeera seeds get a golden color, add the Haldi, Green Chili, Salt, Ginger and Garlic and sauté for a minute.
