Remember, this process has to be done carefully so that the inner part of the egg plant is cooked well).Remove from fire when done and wash the egg plant with water. Peel the skin and mash the egg plant.This is how it looks like after the skin is peeled.Add tamarind paste and salt to the mashed egg plant and keep aside.Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan.Add mustard seeds and let them splutter.Now add the cumin seeds and black gram dal and let them fry till brown i.e 1 minute approx.Now add the curry leaves and fry for few seconds.Add the chopped onions,ginger and green chillis and fry till transparent.Dont brown it.Now add the mashed egg plant which has been mixed with the tamarind paste and salt.Mix well.Let it cook for 3-4 minutes.Turn off heat and garnish with chopped coriander.Serve with hot rice and ghee or rotis.
