Aloo Baingan Recipe / Punjabi Aloo Baingan / Potato Eggplant Curry

Aloo Baingan Recipe
Today's recipe is a simple, flavorful and delicious side dish, Aloo Baingan / Potato Eggplant Curry. Again this is another recipe shared by my neighbor Aunt from whom i learnt making Punjabi Kadi Pakora and Punjabi Garam Masala Recipes. But this time, this Aloo Baingan is prepared by me, where as the Kadhi & Garam Masala are prepared by Auntie and I took pictures alone.

One fine day on a casual talk with her, she said the gonna prepare Aloo Baingan and Rotis for dinner. At first on hearing Aloo Baingan, i Thought that it as Baingan Bharta with some mashed potato and was curious to know the exact method of Aloo Baingan. But than she told me that Baingan Bharta is different and Aloo Baingan is different and also the recipe for the later one. I was impressed with the recipe and the very next day i prepared it at home and shared with her. After tasting it, she said that it is little spicy than her version and perfectly cooked masala and yummy too. Whatelse i want, she never fails to appreciate me after tasting my recipes, Aunt and the whole family loves my cooking and Bhaiya always suggest me to open an Indian Restaurant ;) Yeah, that's my dream too and hope it happens one day !! Now off to the recipe...
