To begin making the Dahi Baingan Recipe (Brinjal In Curd Based Gravy), prepare all the ingredients, with chopping veggies and keeping all the other ingredients handy.
In a shallow frying pan, heat about 2 teaspoons of cooking oil, and saute all the brinjal cubes lightly without making them mushy, on a medium flame till the brinjals are browned. Switch off and keep aside.
In a mixing bowl, mix curd (yogurt) and besan until there are no lumps. Now add coriander powder, red chilli powder, fennel powder, garam masala, turmeric powder to the bowl and mix well.
Take a kadai and dry roast sesame seeds and dry red chillies. Once they cool down to room temperature, blend them in a mixer to a fine powder.
Now take little oil in the same kadai, heat. Once it is heated, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Let it splutter.
Add split urad dal, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, bay leaf and wait for it to change color. When color changes add curry leaves, allow them to splutter and add ginger garlic paste immediately and fry for a few seconds till the raw smell disappears.
Add finely sliced onions and fry on medium heat until onion i brownish.
Add sliced tomatoes and cook until they turn soft and mushy.
Once the tomatoes are cooked, add curd besan and spice powder mix from the bowl and fold till everything gets mixed well.
Now add the brinjal cubes which were previously sauteed and continue cooking for some more time till the masala gets seeped into the brinjal, by cooking covered and sauteing occasionally.
Add salt, mix, do a taste check and garnish the Dahi Baingan with coriander leaves and switch off heat.
