aloo baingan recipe, how to make dry aloo baingan recipe


aloo baingan recipe – this simple and super easy recipe of aloo baingan is from my mil and is a variation of the stuffed aloo baingan recipe that i have earlier posted.

in this recipe of aloo baingan we just slice or chop the aubergines or baingans instead of keeping them whole. the spices used are same as for the stuffed aloo baingan recipe. this is also a dry aloo baingan recipe.

being a fantastic cook, my mil dishes out awesome punjabi recipes. her trademark is that her recipes are easy to make and yet super yum.

they are so easy that even a novice in cooking can make her recipes.

this aloo baingan is one such easy veggies recipe and there are other simple veggies recipes of hers like:

and more to come…..

also you will see my food photographs are becoming better and better if you check the above recipes. i was such a novice before and am still learning photography.


i have used mustard oil in this recipe but even with a simple vegetable oil like sunflower oil the aloo baingan taste fabulous.

one can have the aloo baingan with parathas, phulkas and even plain bread.

without much ado we go for the recipe. and for this one i do not have a step by step :-(
