How to make Khatta meetha baingan?

To prepare the khatta baingan recipe, I have used the large purple brinjals. First, I have peeled the skin of the brinjal and then cut them in medium cubes. Then I have soaked them in salted water because the brinjals turn brown when they meet air.

For the sour taste of the recipe, I have used tomatoes. I have blended tomatoes with dry red chillies for the recipe.

I have used sugar for the sweetness of the gravy. If you like to skip it in any case, then you can use jaggery too instead of sugar.

Other than these, I have used sliced onions, garlic, ginger and chopped coriander leaves or cilantros for the flavouring of the Khatta meetha baingan.

I have not used any whole spice for the tempering of the dish. I have used little bit of garam masala other than turmeric powder among ground spices to enhance the flavour of the dish.

To make the gravy thicker in consistency, I have mixed cornflour in little water in a separate bowl and pour it in the gravy for simmering.

First, I have cooked the onion, ginger, garlic masala and then added the soaked brinjal cubes and cooked them. After some time, I have added salt, turmeric powder and the tomato paste one by one into the pan and cooked them till tender.

I always prefer the gravy to be of moderate consistency for the Khatta meetha baingan. So, I have not added too much water for the gravy. At the end, I have added cornflour water, chopped coriander leaves, sugar and garam masala powder into the gravy and cooked it.
