Dry Curry with O & GAloo Baingan recipe | Potato and eggplant subzi

Aloo Baingan recipe | Potato and eggplant subzi

Aloo baingan (urulai kathrikkai poriyal) is a north indian style dry subzi  with potatoes and eggplant. I have noted down few recipes which i tasted during our trip, to London and Europe, and more than all liked by the kids. This aloo baingan subzi, we tasted on our first day of our trip. We all loved it very much and kids who generally don’t take eggplant, loved it very much. So i tried this last weekend at home, and it was a super hit. This goes well with both  chapathi and rice. Stay tuned for more recipes coming up, which i learnt during my family holiday and my extended holiday to India for wedding.
