Baigan ka salan | Eggplant Curry

Baigan ka salan is very rich thick gravy recipe and perfect side dish for briyani or roti where peanut ,sesame seeds and coconut is grinded to fine paste which makes salan rich and thick and spice powder, fried brinjal/eggplant.I love to eat brinjal only when my mom prepares this baigan ka salan or sometimes ennai kathrikai 😉 and since I am allergic to peanuts 🙁 🙁 she uses coconut,sesame seeds,cashew for the thick paste.
