Preparation Time: 45 minutes

  • 1 large eggplant

  • Salt as per your taste


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

Place eggplant on a medium baking sheet. Bake 20 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until tender. Remove from heat, let it cool. Start peeling the skin and since the eggplant is soft you can just put try to break it down into small pieces with a spoon.

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in mustard seeds, asafoetida and onion. Cook and stir until onion is tender.
