How to Make Kashmiri Dahi Baingan Recipe
Soak 500 gms brinjal cut in to 1 inch pieces in salt water to prevent discolouration and also to soften the baingan during cooking
In a preheated pan and 1 tbsp mustard oil and 500 gms soaked baingan pieces. Salt which helps it to roast evenly and release moisture. Stir well and then cover the pan and allow the baingan to steam cook on medium heat. Stir intermittently to ensure that the baingan roasts on both sides. After 4 to 5 minutes the baingan will be roasted and cooked. Turn off the heat.
In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of dahi, 2 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder, 2 tsp dry ginger powder,½ tsp turmeric and salt to taste. Whisk the dahi well till it is well mixed.
In a preheated pan add1 tbsp mustard oil,¼ tsp asafoetida, 1tsp coarsely pounded fennel seeds and 4 green cardamom. Stir and roast for a few seconds till aromas are released and cardamom puff up.
To this add the dahi mixture and a little later. Bring to a brisk boil for 1 minute keep whisking so that the dahi is a smooth mixture and does not curdle. Since no besan has been used, the dahi will curdle a little bit.
