2 Heat oil in a vessel, add cumin seeds and let them brown. Add crushed ginger and chopped onions and saute for 4-5 mts. Add turmeric pwd and combine. Add the cubed brinjals and cook on medium high flame for 3 mts. Cover with lid and let them cook on medium low flame for 15-17 mts. Keep checking in between and stir fry to ensure the brinjals don’t burn or stick to the pan.
