DAHI BAIGAN ( BRINJALS IN CURD GRAVY )

I am unable to get exact words to tell sorry to my all blogger friends for taking such a long leave from all of you without any information. I was stuck with my some personal works and that’s why I could not update my blog.


I saw so many new dishes from my other blogger friends in my dash board but still have to go in detail. My last recipe was from my native Bhubaneswar and without breaking this chain I will continue my some more recipes from my mother’s place. My today’s recipe is very common and popular recipe of Orissa i.e., Dahi Baigan (Brinjal in Curd gravy).So here is the recipe of it.

Dahi Baigan (Brinjal in Curd Gravy)

Preparation time: 10 minutes (Approximately)
