Aloo Baingan Recipe – Potato and Aubergine Curry

Freda Shafi is a Yorkshire based passionate foodie, mum of two, blogger, food stylist and content editor of thefeedfeed.com. Freda’s specialises in South Asian cuisine, creating dishes with an exciting variety of deliciously rich and exotic flavours.
Following on from her sold-out event at West Yorkshire’s Boundary House in Methley, where she showcased a range of Indian dishes over a four-course meal with their in-house chefs, Freda shares with us her Aloo Baingan Recipe. This is the perfect healthy winter warmer to blow away those post-Christmas blues.
Adding a few interesting ingredients to make this dish really pop, it was a hit on the night of the takeover and it’s just as easy to create in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Ingredients
2 medium size eggplant/aubergine chopped into approx 3cm squares
3 medium potatoes peeled and chopped to a similar size as the eggplant
1 1/2 onion finely diced
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tbsp crushed garlic
1 tsp mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves (buy dried ones if you can’t get hold of them fresh)
Fresh coriander to garnish
Spices
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp ground coriander
1 /2 tsp mild chilli powder
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp dried mango (amchur) powder
1 tsp garam masala
Salt to taste
Oil

Method

  • Heat some oil in a large saucepan and add the mustard seeds and curry leaves. When they start to ‘pop’ add the onion and cumin seeds and sauté until translucent.
  • Add all the other spices and stir through.
  • Add the potato and combine with the spices. Add some water (approx 1 cup) to cover the potatoes. Turn down the heat and let the potato cook for 10-15 mins until al-dente.
  • Add the eggplant and combine with the sauce. Cook until the eggplant is tender and cooked through
  • Garnish with coriander and Serve immediately with steamed rice or roti

Enjoy!
