- 1Prick the eggplant nicely with the fork all over.
- 2Broil the eggplant in the oven(right under the broil) for about 7 minutes one side and anther 7 mins on the other side until the skin starts charring. Let it cool and remove the skin. Or roast it in a grill pan after peeling skin or burn it on the stove top. Keep the burnt eggplant in a ziplock bag and sweat it for easy removal of skin.

- 4Fry the onions in oil + ghee till it turns to golden color. Then add Ginger-Garlic Paste to it and fry for another minute.
- 5To this add tomatoes and all the rest of the masala's and fry for 2 more minutes until tomatoes are nicely cooked and mashed.
- 6Now to this add the mashed eggplant + 2 Tbsp of water and cook on light flame for about 5 more minutes until all the ingredients are nicely blended. Add cream. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves.
