Sliced Eggplant and Potato Dry Curry - Ringna batata nu Shak

This is the recipe of my mom, she used to make this and we always had it with Khichdi or rotli. Now my sister also make it at her home and me too. This is very easy but delicious shak (subji). You can have it with hot roti or khichdi too. Pair it with dal and you have your whole platter.


1 long purple eggplant - matchstick slices
1 Potato - Matchstick slices
1 tbsp. ginger, garlic, green chili paste
1 tbsp. red chili powder
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1 tbsp cumin-coriander powder
salt to taste
fresh chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. mustard seeds


Cut the potatoes and eggplant in matchstick slices.
Heat a pan, add mustard seeds, when its popped, add ginger garlic paste, all powder masala and mix it and add vegetables along with salt.
Add 1-2 tbsp. water. Cover the pan and cook it on medium to low flame.
When the potato is cooked and water is gone, shut off the flame and sprinkle coriander leaves and enjoy hot with phulka or khichdi.
