Aloo Baingan ( Potatoes And Brinjal Curry)

Yet another popular North Indian curry that combines brinjals with potatoes. Ideal for rotis or rice. This is the first recipe that turned my brinjal aversive hubby to a brinjal tolerant person and now this curry is part of our family. There's a satwik version to this recipe which is very different and less spicy but I will share it some other day.
