Aloo Baingan Recipe – Curried eggplant and potato recipe

Eggplant is one of my favorite vegetables. Eggplant salad, roasted eggplant or eggplant curries, I like them prepared anyhow.

Not many people like them because, I suppose, they don’t look very appetizing after cooking but they can be really delicious once cooked!

So today I am going to share this delicious and spicy eggplant and potato curry , a North Indian recipe, called Aloo Baingan.

Aloo Baingan is a flavored vegetable recipe, full of spices and very tasty. It can be served with any Indian bread, as a main course for lunch or dinner meal.
