I am posting this recipe for my blogging friend and I hope she likes it.I picked up the purple small brinjals y'day when i went vegetable shopping to make this subzi today. Bagara Baingan is a traditional hyderabadi Brinjal subzi.It is a great accompaniment for Biryani,pulao and Jeera pulao.In the traditional way the brinjals are deep fried and added to the gravy but i have not deep fried them.There is a smoky flavour to this dish traditionally but i have made it in a simple way!!!
