Tips to Make Your Hyderabadi Baingan Masala Extra Special

  • You can also bake the eggplants instead of deep frying them but that may take at least 20 mins more.
  • You can enhance the sweet-spicy flavour of the dish by adding a paste of peanuts, sesame seeds, cashews and tamarind in the gravy. Cashews and coconut flakes are added primarily to make the gravy richer, creamier and healthier.
  • Serve a cool yogurt dip or raita along with your Baingan Masala to have a satisfying meal.
