Vankaya Masala/Baingan Masala

My last post I mentioned about cooking my daughter's birthday. The hit curry of the party was eggplant curry "baingan ka Salan" in hyderabadi terms or Vankaya masala. I am not a big fan of eggplant. I have started appreciating this vegetable only a few years ago. This is one of the eggplant preparation's that I really like and is a slight variation from traditional gutti vankaya koora. Ingredients Indian Eggplant- 10 Oil-2 Table Spoons Onion-1 chopped and blended into paste Ginger Garlic Paste- 1 Table Spoon Salt Tamarid- Soaked and strained Tomato Puree-1/2 cup. Fresh tomato puree always tastes better. You can use a can if pressed for time. Masala Peanuts-Fistful KhusKhus-1 Table Spoon Jeera or Cummin seeds-1/2 Table Spoon Methi seeds or Fenugreek seeds-1/2 tea spoon Dry coconut-2 Table Spoons Dry Whole red chilli -2 WHole Dhaniya or Coriander seeds-1/2 Table Spoon Nuvvulu or Seseme seeds- 1 Table spoon Method 1.Do not cut the stem off from eggplants 2.Cut egg plants from the top on the other side of the stem to 4 pieces but not completly. Egg plant remains one piece but is sliced from the top. 3. Heat 1 Table spoon oil in a flat pan and once the oil is hot add the cut egglpants and close the pan. 4.Let the cook on medium heat and turn after a few minutes. Egg plants shrinks in size and become tender. For Masala Dry Roast Peanuts. Dry Roast Khus Khus. Dry Roast Fenugreek seeds , Seseme and cummin seeds together. Add coriander seeds after the two are half roasted. Once you start smelling cummin seeds, turn off the stove and add dry coconut. Let everything cool and make a paste of this. 1.Heat a hevay bottemed pan. 2.Add 1 table spoon oil. 3. Add onion paste once the oil is hot. 4. Fry onion paste for a few minutes and add ginger garlic paste 5. After afew minutes it starts browning and now its time to add tomato puree. 6. Fry until the raw smell of tomato goes away. 7.Add the ground masala, mix well and cover. 8.let it cook for few minutes and add salt and red chilli powder. 9.Add the fried egg plant. 10.Add the tamarind and let it simmer a little while. Salt, chilli powder and tamarid can be adjusted according to your taste. It might seem a little tedious but it is not. The masala can be made and frozen for future use and it will taste equally good as the freshly ground. This is a tried and tested recipe and has always been liked by anyone who ate. Please try and let me know how you liked it. I am attaching a picture of the curry from the party. Will try to get a better one next time I make it.

Hi Shanti,I tried the Baingan masala.Awesome.Thanks.
I live in India and have a garden and grow vegetables and lots of flowers.Baingan is one of them.I wanted to make this masala and was searching the net and thus bumped into your site.You have left, while posting, the red chilli part to fry and grind.( I thought so).or it has to be used as seasoning?Any way it came out well and we enjoyed it.

Thanks for this recipe! It looks great! Unfortunately, on my first try, I had a lot of trouble reading the amounts of the ingredients. I found that rewriting it with each ingredient on its own line helped me keep track of how much of each thing is needed. Other than that, I really enjoyed!
