I discovered the deliciousness of homecooked sabzis after my marriage at my home my parents home I was not a big fan I cannot explain the reason my be i was spoiled lol but Alhamdulillah now i can say i love sabzis not all of them lol take those karelas away from me cant eat them sorry.

let get to our recipe of this week baigan i think its one of my favorite specially if its cooked this way so easy yet so good traditionally eaten with daal chawal but for me i would prefer naan my brother he would run to grab some naan when Ammi cooked baigan her recipe is different still delicious but I will go with this on my saas ( mother-in-law) recipe.


One large eggplant, baigan, brinjal

3 large tomatoes chopped

1-2 large potatoes cubed(optional)
