Plain Baingan Bhaji

1 lb Eggplant1 tsp Mustard SeedsOil
1 pinch HingSalt
3-4 Curry Leaves
1 tsp Tamarind Pulp
1.5 tsp Chilli Powder
1 tsp Dhania Jeera
1 tsp Turmeric

Cut Eggplant into long thin slices and soak in cold water for 5 minutes. Rub the slices in the water before draining to remove seeds.
Heat a skillet with 2-3 tsp oil and splutter the mustard seeds.
Add hing, curry leaves, tamarind pulp and saute for half a minute.
Add the eggplant and cook on a medium flame until tender and soft. (about 10 minutes)
Add the turmeric, chilli powder, dhania jeera powder and salt to taste.
Mix well and cook until the eggplant is well cooked and brown.
Season with Dhania and serve.

Rubbing the eggplant before draining removes seeds and keeps from making the recipe bitter.
