Achari Baingan recipe – How to make achari baingan curry. Another variation of the humble egg plant flavored with pickling spices.
When the winter arrives, or whatever winter we have here, it also brings along the desire to eat food that is hot and spicy. Apart from the soups, spicy gravies and hot, hot snacks we also have the recipes which feels like bliss in winter.
The Achari Baingan recipe is not your typical pickle which can be bottled and stored for months and years, but the taste is same.
The spices added in this Achari baingan recipe get super absorbed in the juicy egg plant and the much humble egg plant tastes amazingly delicious.
I have added fennel seeds (saunf), nigella seeds (kalonji) and mustard oil. You can skip the kalonji if you don’t get it easily. Any other oil can also be added instead of mustard oil but the mustard oil gives it a very good flavor. And instead of frying, you can also grill the egg plants over flame.
Serve it plain hot rice or the amazingly tasty Lucknowi Mutton Biryani Recipe-Awadhi Biryani or just with plain chapati or roti. The achari baingan recipe tastes awesome with anything and everything.
