Couple of days back, while I was pondering over the menu for the guests coming for dinner, I received an unexpected bunch of homegrown brinjals from a very dear friend of mine. The brinjals looked so fresh and inviting that I couldn’t resist including it in the menu, despite knowing that it was not a preferred veggie among many people. The challenge was to come up with some innovative preparation, which would be hard to resist. So that’s when Achaari Baingan came to my mind. The dish came out as perfect as it could be, the confirmation being, a second and third helping by the guests
Update: Today I prepared Achaari Aloo by substituting brinjals with potatoes and Boy!! Was it good???? We LOVED it. So those of you who aren’t much of a brinjal fan, can always substitute brinjals with the vegetable of your choice, potatoes being the recommended option. The source of this recipe is Tarla Dalal

    This is a great recipe. I followed all your directions and used Potato instead of Brinjal, the end result turned to be really delicious. I am a fan of your website now.

    Hi Mareena….I thought I’ll try something different when my neighbour presented us with a basketful of homegrown baigan. And I’m glad I tried your Achaari Baigan recipe. The dish was excellent. Thanks for the post.
