Baingan Bhujiya aka sauted eggplants

I remember my Mom with every Indian  meal i prepare.With this particular dish even more.She used to make this dish when she was in hurry,she had made 'paratha' for breakfast for us and this was the quick side dish to go with that,as it took less time to cook then most popular 'Aloo Bhujiya'(sauted matchstick cuts potatos).I did the simplest version here.

  • eggplant(any kind)
  • dash of cumin seeds(optional)
  • dash of chili flakes(optional)
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • oil,salt and pepper
  • 1 tomato

Add garlic to oil and when the seasonings and garlic are crackled ,add eggplants.Brown it and when it starts sorta getting mushy,add  tomatos.Cook it for 10-15 mins.Serve it  with 'Parathas','Roti, Flour Tortilla,
'Puri', puffy tacos , fried rice to name some options.

Side Notes:
-Eggplants LOVE garlic,so be generous. This dish can be jazzed up with couple more spices and can be transformed into altogether different dishes.Subject of posts in future !
