Recipe - Brinjal & Capsicum Sabji

Brinjal, known as baingan in Hindi, it is also known to be king of vegetables. High on nutrients, this vegetable has many health benefits and hence, you should consume it at least once a week. Although a lot of people don’t like the taste of it, but if you cook it well, it can be extremely delicious. We paired Baingan with capsicum that made an excellent combination The Brinjal subzi here combines the mildness of brinjal with the flavor of capsicum, the tangy sweetness of tomato and spiced with masalas, garlic, ginger and onions. A healthy, wholesome subji which goes well with hot chapati’s or paratha’s.
