Aloo Baingan Curry

Sometimes it so happens that I try certain recipes from certain blogs and then they turn out great and I click them and then either leave it my cam or in my PC and then move on.This is not intentional though.My craze to try out recipes and to prepare something new is the culprit.

There were a couple of posts sitting in my drafts for a year and luckily Ria announced Tried and tasted -Sindi Rasoi and I posted all that was in my drafts.Almost half a dozen.Again it happened .Priya of Priya's easy and tasty recipes chose Divya's Chef in You for this months edition of Tried and Tasted,an event started by Zlamushka and now being carried on by Lakshmi of Kitchen Chronicles.I have already blogged around a dozen of her recipes and have a couple of them in drafts and here is the chance to post them all!

Today's post is a simple curry of Potato and Brinjal- Aloo Baingan curry.
