METHOD:

  • After peeling the skin, take a bowl of water and rinse the brinjal again to avoid too much of smoke smell coming out from it.
  • Mash the brinjal here and there to ensure that there is not insects in it.
  • If you want you can pulse in a mixer else you can mash it with hands. I put mine in  a mixer to get a smooth texture.
