Dahi Baingan/Dahi Baigana

Dahi baingana is a traditional Oriya recipe prepared simply with yogurt, deep fried eggplants and tempered with mustard seeds, curry leaves. This eggplant in yogurt sauce is spiced simply with chopped green chillies, roasted cumin powder and thinly sliced ginger. Served along with a hot steaming rice, you can have this incredible dish or else simply as a snack if you love eggplants. This dahi baigana gets ready very much quickly than you can imagine. One of the easiest and the simplest dish i have ever cooked with eggplants. Many varieties of dahi baigana exists, i went on searching for a prefect traditional Odiya style dahi baigana and finally i landed to Oriya Food and loved the simplicity of this dish.
