Sautéed Aubergine With Tamarind Recipe by Archana’s Kitchen


  • To prepare Sautéed Aubergine With Tamarind Recipe, slice each aubergine into 4 and then dice it into medium sized chunks. Keep aside. Once tamarind has soaked for a few hours in water, pulp out the extract, strain from its residues and keep aside.

  • Heat oil in a pan and shallow fry the diced aubergines for a few minutes. Saute till the aubergines wilt a little or is soft and cooked till aldente. Once done, remove from pan and keep aside.

  • Into the same pan, add some more oil and add finely sliced onions and saute until it turns translucent. Into this add the shallow fried aubergine pieces and combine well.

  • Now add the diced tomatoes along with salt and mix well. Add a little water into the pan and cover and cook till tomato turns soft. (approx. 5 minutes)

  • Now add in the chilli and turmeric powders and toss well. Add just a little more water and continue to cover and cook on low heat till the aubergine is cooked through.

  • Once the aubergine is cooked well, remove the lid and add the tamarind juice or paste into it and combine well. (add tamarind paste/juice little by little and check for sourness to get the right balance of flavours)

  • Cook without lid till the gravy has reduced and has a semi-thick consistency. Add powdered jaggery at this time and mix well. Garnish Sautéed Aubergine With Tamarind Recipe with chopped coriander leaves and serve with rotis/chapathis or plain rice.
