Baingan Mussallam

We have started the last week of BM# 31 and I have chooses Main course dishes from the first letter  'M' named themes suggested by Srivalli. Being a vegetarian I always want to prepare some of the famous non veg dishes , replacing the main non veg ingredient with a vegetarian substitute .
 I have heard a lot about Awadhi Murgh Mussallam and wanted to give it a try. I was searching for related recipes and found this one here. In this recipe the brinjal are fried and prepared in rich creamy gravy , resulting a succulent curry that can be enjoyed with Rice or Chapati.Although any vegetable can be used with basic gravy but eggplant gives it an amazingly different taste and texture.  So let's start the recipe .yum
Baingan mussallam

4 to 5 small brinjal/eggplant
1 onion , finely chopped
2 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
1 tomato , chopped
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/4 cup fresh tomato puree

1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon sugar
salt to taste
Vegetable oil for deep frying
2 tablespoon clarified butter
1 cup water

To garnish:

3 tablespoon fresh cream
2 green chilly , slits

Wash and cut the brinjal into halves.
