Ingredients for Mushroom Baingan Masala:
Eggplant – also known as baingan in India. I recommend using the Indian Eggplant for this recipe.
Green Peas – also known as matar in India. Can be fresh or frozen (thawed).
Ginger + Garlic
Indian Spices – like turmeric, salt, red chili powder, etc.
Okay, now who here loves eggplants or ‘baingan’ as we call them in India?
Although it’s an easy vegetable to work with, but it’s really tough to make everyone like it…maybe its the color/shape or just the simple taste.
But I’ve changed many eggplant haters into ‘Oh My Goodness, I can’t believe it’s eggplant lovers’ 😉
And this recipe is an example of a few of them that I’d share with you’ll in the future.
This Mushroom Baingan Masala is going to leave you speechless …. in a Good Way … OR Very Good Way 😉
Now, I also have friends who for some reason or the other had to leave meat but they still crave that texture or flavors.
So this is one recipe, where the spices are very close to a ‘meat curry’ recipe and the sauteeing of mushroom+eggplants together result in this grainy texture that resembles meat.
The Mushroom Baingan Masala recipe is extremely easy.
I can guarantee, you’d crave the taste again and again and It might just become your favorite goto Indian veggie recipe 🙂
