Aloo Baingan (potato and aubergine) curry

A harmonious blend of potatoes, aubergines and aromatic spices, this curry is a hearty and flavourful dish that embodies the essence of Indian cuisine.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes Serves: 4

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 small aubergines (eggplants), cubed
  • 12-15 curry leaves
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp amchur (dried mango powder), optional
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves, chopped (for garnish)
  1. Tempering the Curry:
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • Add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle for a few seconds until fragrant.
  • Toss in the chopped onion and sauté until translucent.
  1. Aromatic Base:
  • Add the minced garlic and grated ginger. Sauté for another 1-2 minutes until the raw smell disappears.
  1. Curry Leaves and Spices:
  • Stir in the fresh curry leaves, ground turmeric, ground coriander, red chili powder, and garam masala. Mix well to coat the onions and spices.
  1. Potatoes and Cooking Liquid:
  • Gently place the cubed potatoes into the pan. Stir to combine with the spice mixture.
  • Pour in the water and tomato puree. Season with salt according to your taste preferences. Give everything a good stir.
  1. Simmering the Curry:
  • Cover the pan with a lid and let the curry simmer on medium-low heat for about 25-30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking. The potatoes should become tender.
  1. Finishing Touch:
  • Once the potatoes are cooked through, and the curry has thickened, turn off the heat.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves to add a burst of colour and freshness.
  1. Serving:
  • Serve the Curry Leaf and Potato Curry hot with steamed rice, naan, or roti.
  • Note: Feel free to adjust the spiciness and seasoning according to your taste. You can also add other vegetables like peas or carrots for extra variety.
