Brinjal (Eggplant) Round Pan Fry

Brinjal_Round_Eggplant_Pan_Fry_1 Brinjal (Eggplant) is a common vegetable available throughout the year. It is available in different colours and sizes and can be cooked as a combo or solo dish. Some people do not like it, because of it’s seeds and for them even there are some variety of brinjals with less seeds.

Here I have prepared round shaped Brinjal Pan Fry that is simple and tasty.

Serves: 4

Cooking time: 15 minutes other than marinating time


  • Big brinjal – 1 no
  • Ginger garlic paste – ½ tea spoon
  • Coriander powder – 1 tea spoon
  • Red chilli powder – ½ tea spoon
  • Turmeric – ¼ tea spoon
  • Corn flour – ½ tea spoon
  • Salt – as per taste
  • Oil – 1 to 1 ½ tea spoon

  • Mix corn flour, salt, turmeric, red chilli powder, coriander powder, ginger & garlic paste; add one or two tea spoon of water to make paste.
  • Wash and cut brinjal into round slices, neither too thick nor too thin; with a fork pierce the slices gently here and there; this helps to absorb salt and masala inside and to cook easily and evenly.
  • Now coat each piece with masala paste on both sides; marinate it for 15 to 20 minutes for the masala to be absorbed inside.
  • Heat a non-stick pan, sprinkle some oil; arrange 4 to 5 pieces on the pan, cook in low flame.
