Aloo Baingan Sabji

This is a simple Aloo Baingan Sabji with flavours from lime juice, crushed peanuts and crushed poppyseeds.  A little different from normal aloo baingan sabji and if you dont prefer sourness from lime you can substitute it by adding tomato to it. It is equally delicious as I have tried with both. Give it a try and I am sure you will love it. Now lets prepare it.


2 Long Purple Aubergine Sliced in rounds
2 Small Potatoes Sliced in rounds
1 Small Onion thinly Sliced
1 Tsp Crushed Poppy Seeds
1 Tbsp  Crushed Peanuts
1/4 Tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 Tsp Cumin Seeds
1/4 Tsp Fennel Seeds
Pinch of Asafoetida
Salt to Taste
1/2 Tsp Turmeric Powder
1/2 Tsp Cumin Powder
1/2 Tsp Coriander Powder
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Lime juice

Heat oil in Pan. Add Mustard seeds, Cumin Seeds, Fennel Seeds and let it splutter. Add Asafoetida and Crushed peanuts to the oil.
Add onion and Stir till it is slightly cooked. Now add potatoes and Aubergine. Add salt, Turmeric, Cumin Powder and Coriander Powder . Mix and cover and cook for 7-8 minutes stirring in between.
Lastly Add Crushed poppy seeds and lime juice.
Serve with Rice or Roti.
