Brinjal chutney recipe with step by step pics – simple, easy and quick chutney made with aubergines. Gluten-free and vegan.

brinjal chutney

Brinjal is also known as baingan or kathirikai or vangi or vankaya in other languages.

Here’s a very easy chutney recipe that I make with baingan. one more recipe from the drafts 🙂

The preparation of baingan chutney is similar to baingan bharta, but fewer spices and herbs are used in this chutney. The main flavoring spice in this rustic dish is ajwain or carom seeds. The flavors of carom seeds accompany the smokiness of the fire roasted aubergine very well.

This smoky mushy dish serves very well as a side dish with chapatis and also with dal-rice. You can also have this vankaya chutney as a dip with pakoras or fritters.

5. Heat oil. First add the ajwain (carom seeds) and fry for some seconds till the oil become aromatic. Then add the onions, ginger-garlic paste and saute till the onions become translucent. I used sunflower oil, but the recipe can also be made with olive oil.

6. Add the Kashmiri red chili powder and stir. I added ¼ tsp Kashmiri red chili powder which does not make this chutney spicy. For more spicy taste, you can easily add up ½ tsp of Kashmiri red chili powder or also more as per your taste.

  1. hello… I just want to know wether if v put onions for how many days it survives.. ?? as I’m in US .. I don find the large baingan in comparatively smaller size.. plss suggest as how to make the chutney survive for atleast a week… thanks..

    1. if you saute the onions till light golden or golden, then no issues. for any chutney or pickle, just add some more oil in the bowl or jar till it covers the chutney or pickle. this way the chutney won’t get spoiled and stays good for at least a week to 10-12 days in the refrigerator.

      1. We Brahmins of South India do not use garlici in our cooking.The first 4 steps r the same .but we saute musterd seeds ,urud dhal 1tsp and 4 to 5 red chillies.with step four (the cooked on flame brinjal alone no onion)we add the sauted chillies plus a small ball of tamarind and salt to taste and grind this in the mixie. lastly add the urud dhal and musterd just give aturn two of the mixie.This is the other way it can be tried.I tried ur recipe and loved it.4 stars
