How to make Safed Achari Baingan Recipe - White Aubergine in pickled spices

  1. To begin making the Achari Baingan Recipe, we will first make the achari masala.

  2. To prepare marinade for Achari masala, in a pan add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, nigella seed, carom seeds, fenugreek seeds and dry red chilies. Dry roast the spices and chilies over medium heat till fragrant and slightly browned. Turn off the heat. Transfer spices to the jar of mixer and grind into a coarse powder. Keep the achari powder aside.

  3. Wash and clean baingan and keep aside.

  4. Heat oil in a wok and add mustard and cumin seeds in it and wait till they crackle.

  5. Add chopped onions and saute till raw smell goes off. Now add ginger garlic paste and fry well till golden.

  6. Now add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder and the achari masala along with chopped tomatoes

  7. Saute until the tomatoes soften. Meanwhile slit the baingan from the middle into two but keep the joint intact. This is done so that the masala gets inside the aubergine nicely while cooking.

  8. Add the baingan in the fried masala and mix well such that everything incorporates well.

  9. Add little amchur if required and stir well. Add little water just to make sure the masala doesn't stick to the bottom of the heavy bottomed pan.

  10. Add salt as per your taste and slow cook the baingan in low flame with lid closed.

  11. Once the baingan softens, turn off the heat and garnish with freshly chopped coriander and stir.

  12. Serve the Safed Achari Baingan Recipe along with hot Phulkas smeared with ghee or along with hot steamed rice as a one dish dinner or a quick weeknight dinner.
