ALOO BAINGAN

(Potato and Aubergine Curry)

 

A quick and easy dish to make.  Aubergine or Eggplant, I find that this vegetable does not really have much of a taste, it is almost like a sponge.  Aubergine is a low-calorie food that is rich in nutrients and comes with many potential health benefits, from reducing the risk of heart disease to helping with blood sugar control and weight loss.  I am going to make it tasty for you so try this tangy and spicy vegetable dish, which will leave you licking your fingers.
