Brinjal/Egg plant/Bengan/Vankaya chutney

Brinjal is one of my favorite vegetable. I love Hyderabadi style bagara bengan. Sone are very allergic to this vegetable. I find some people who are allergic to Gongura are also allergic to brinjal. I love this chutney it smells awesome. I found this brinjal in Kroger super market near my home. It is garden grown/organic, so I felt it will  taste better than the one you get in market.

Ingredients:
Brinjal- cubed to pieces- 1 cup
Cilantro/coriander- 1/2cup
Ginger- 1  inch piece
Garlic- 4 cloves
Tomatos chopped-1/2cup
green chili-2
salt to tase
cumin seeds few
coriander powder-1/2ts
red chili powder-1/2ts
Chana dal-1tbsp
vegetable oil-2tbsp
For seasoning
Cumin seeds- few
mustard seeds-few
chana dal-1/2tbsp
Red chili-1

Directions:
Heat 2tbsp of oil in a pan and add brinjal saute until half cooked and remove, now add all the remaining ingredients and cook them under medium flame in a closed pan. When the tomatos are well cooked add brinjal and cook for few more minutes and turn off the stove. Now grind them into fine paste and take it into bowl. For tempering heat 1tbsp of oil in a pan and add red chili, cumin, mustard and chana dal one by one and wait till they spalatter. Now add this tempering to grind mixture and mix well. Enjoy this with rice/roti.
