Sweet and sour brinjal recipe

Brinjal recipe from Lucknow kitche. Awadhi cuisine
  1. Heat oil, add a little methi and kalaunji.
  2. Saute onions, add crushed garlic and ginger paste
  3. When brownish, add turmeric, coriander powder, chilly powder, salt and a little water. Let it cook for a while.

This comes from the Lucknowi kitchen of Mrs Saida Ahmad (Saddo Aunty). It goes well with roti. She makes many different kinds of rotis too! Will get some recipes some other time. This recipe was shared by her about a decade ago, on one my visits to her home when she had fractured her leg and pampered me with old time tales, advice and recipes.
