hyderabadi dum ke baingan recipe with step by step photos – i had made the dum ke baingan some days ago. sneaking away the time to post this delectable hyderabadi spicy recipe. aubergines or brinjals, as we call them are my favorite. i love them fried, roasted, in a curry or as a dip. had these long baingans (brinjals) in the kitchen and so decided to make the dum ke baingan. i have adapted the recipe from the cookbook – “1000 Great Indian Recipes, the Ultimate Book of Indian Cuisine” by Neeta Dutta

an ideal choice would be the small round baingans to make this recipe. but i had the long baingans and they still made a good dum ke baingan.

dum ke baingan is an easy recipe and does not call for much of your time. you need to fry or saute the brinjals and then proceed with preparing the gravy. there is a ground masala used in this recipe, which is sauteed in oil. as you can see i used kashmiri red chilies. it gave a nice red color to the dum ke baingan. another brinjal recipe from hyderabadi cuisine which i have shared is this baingan masala recipe.

the amount of onions used in this dum ke baingan recipe, determines the consistency of the dish. dum ke baingan was nice dish with the rotis and some yogurt. if you love baingans you will love this dish too.

Notes

tips for dum ke baingan recipe:
  • the type of dry red chilies used determines the hotness of this recipe. for a milder and red gray, i suggest kashmiri red chilies
  • adding more onions would result in a fuller gravy, but accordingly you have to increase the other spices to maintain the balance in the dish.
