Hello my dear friends and fellows! Welcome back to my space Dish of Delight once again!
Masala Baingan Fry is a dry curry which is very easy and less time taking recipe. Everyday I am puzzled about what curry to cook for meal. Since, our daily meal includes one non veg side dish, dal and one curry, so, the curry should be different for consecutive days. I just cannot repeat the same curry that I made the previous day or the day before, as it makes the meal boring. But, some days I avoid lengthy cooking to adjust to my busy schedules. So, for those days I select recipes that are both easy to cook and yummy to taste.
Masala Baingan Fry is one of my easy recipes, that I choose to make either on days with busy schedule or when I get too late for cooking.
