Baingan masala is a delicious masala gravy using some masala ingredients such as coconut, peanuts,  poppy seeds that have been cooked in stir fried brinjals.

This is one of the best brinjal curry recipes I have mentioned on the blog so far and this particular brinjal recipe can be served with pulao, bagara rice or just plain rice.

baingan masala recipe

This curry can also be called as “masala baingan”, “vankaya masala” and different regions mention the same recipe with different terms and is also made with some slight variations.

Brinjal is always called as the “king of vegetables” and it is one of the tasty vegetables among all the vegetables.

How do brinjals look like and types of aubergines available:

To simplify the different varieties of brinjals, there are 2 different colors of brinjals available.

There is a green color aubergine and a violet color aubergine. Brinjals also vary in size, shape and length.

There are small brinjals, round brinjals, long brinjals, large brinjals and every country has a different variety of brinjal.

Brinjal in India is referred to as “baingan” in hindi lingo and in telugu it is referred to as “vankaya” and it is referred with different names in different states of India. These are also named as “Eggplant”.

baingan masala or brinjal masala recipe

How can this vegetable be used:

This wonderful vegetable is used in various ways such as gravy recipes, curry recipes, bath recipes, sambar recipes, pakoda recipes, baingan fry recipes etc…

How this recipe is made:

To make this recipe, we first need to make the masala paste by blending them well.

The brinjals need to be sauteed well or roasted well in oil and then should be cooked well in this masala paste and tamarind pulp.

The spices and the tamarind give a very yummy taste to the whole curry and lifts up the flavors of the brinjals as well.

I have used coconuts, peanuts and poppy seeds and this masala is a very good base for korma recipes or fish curry recipes. The main ingredients that give a pleasant aroma to the gravy dish are coriander powder and cumin powder which act as the main flavorful ingredients to the whole baingan masala.

Benefits of baingan or brinjal or Eggplant:

  1. These are best source of food for diabetic patients.
  2. They can control blood sugar levels and also blood pressure levels.
  3. They are rich in fibre and great anti oxidants.
  4. They can help in preventing cancer.
  5. They also reduce the risk of heart diseases.

baingan masala or brinjal masala

I have always used eggplants to make various recipes and in Hyderabad we usually make “bagara baingan” using brinjals which is a good side dish for biryani or pulao recipes.

I also use it as combination to other veggies such as potatoes and also stir fry them. Sometimes we make a chutney of this veggie and tastes amazing and we call the chutney as brinjal chutney or vankaya pachadi.

Below I shall be sharing step by step details on how to make this yummy masala baingan with a mouth watering gravy as the base to the eggplants.

Check out the recipe details below…

How to make baingan masala:

baingan masala recipe, brinjal masala

A brinjal masala gravy recipe made using masala ingredients using coconut, peanuts, poppy seeds etc…

To make masala paste:

  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut ((dry coconut))
  • 2 tbsp groundnuts/peanuts/phalli
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds/ til
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 8-10 dried red chillies
  • 1 medium size cinnamon stick
  • 3-4 cloves
  • 5-6 black pepper corns

To make the brinjal masala:

  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 6-7 fresh curry leaves
  • 2 medium size onions ((finely sliced))
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves

Other ingredients:

  • 500 gms brinjal/baingan
  • 1 big lemon size tamarind extracted pulp

Cleaning and cutting of brinjals:

  1. Firstly, take a utensil, add water, add enough salt into the water, stir well.
  2. Wash the brinjals, take a knife and slit them into + form.
  3. Drop those cut brinjals into the salt water.

Making of masala paste:

  1. Take a pan or tawa, heat it.
  2. Add desiccated coconut, dry roast them for few minutes and take them out
  3. Add groundnuts into it and dry roast them separately for few minutes by stirring them continuously, take them out, cool them down and remove the skin of the peanuts.
  4. Add poppy seeds and saute for few seconds and take them out immediately.
  5. Add coriander seeds,cumin seeds, dry roast for few seconds and take them out.
  6. Into the same pan, add cinnamon stick, cloves, black pepper corns, add dried red chillies, saute for few seconds and take them out.
  7. Make sure the ingredients are not hot.
  8. Take a blender, add all the roasted ingredients into the blender(dried coconut, groundnuts, poppy seeds, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, dried red chillies, cinnamon stick, cloves, black pepper corns).
  9. Make a fine powder.
  10. Add water and make a fine paste by blending well.

Making of the brinjal masala:

  1. Take a cooking pot, add oil and heat it.
  2. Add mustard seeds and let them pop up.
  3. Add fresh curry leaves into the oil and let them crackle.
  4. Add finely sliced onions and saute them until they turn soft.
  5. Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few minutes to get rid of raw smell.
  6. Add the cut brinjals, saute for few minutes until the color of the brinjals changes.
  7. Add the ground masala paste, add salt to taste, turmeric powder, mix well.
  8. Cook the masala on low flame until oil leaves the sides.
  9. Add the tamarind extracted pulp.
  10. Give a mix.
  11. Cook the curry until brinjals turn soft and tender.
  12. Adjust salt and add if required.
  13. The cooking time for brinjals to turn tender is 25 to 30 minutes.
  14. Lastly add chopped coriander leaves into the curry.
  15. Switch off the flame.
  16. Serve hot in a bowl.
  • Here I have cut the brinjals into + form like how they are done to make bharwa baingan and added into the curry but another method to use brinjals into the masala baingan is to remove the stalk of the brinjal, cut the brinjal into two halves and then stir fry after adding them into the oil.
  • If this curry is being made in a hurry then this masala baingan can be pressure cooked for 2 whistles on medium flame after adding all the ingredients. This helps in speeding up the cooking process of the curry.

Strawberry juice, a fresh fruit juice simply made by extracting the juice of strawberries in a blender which is a very healthy option to drink which contains lots of minerals and nutrients.

strawberry juice recipe

How do strawberries look like:

These are oval in shape ranging from bright red in color to maroon color which are quite juicy from inside and have a taste ranging from sweet to slight sour.

These are available in plenty almost in every part of the world and are easily grown in any part of the world.

In India, it is now easy to find this wonder fruit and it is available easily in every grocery store and super markets.

How can these strawberries be stored:

  • Strawberries tend to lose its freshness easily and have to be stored very carefully in refrigerators.
  • The key step to storing them fresh for few days is to wrap them in a paper towel in order to remove the excess moisture attached to the berries and then taking the strawberry box, placing a tissue paper around the box and finally placing the dried strawberries into the box.
  • This method helps in the berries remaining fresh for few days.
  • Another method to keep strawberries fresh for a long time is to wash them well, remove the stalk of the berries, dry them well and then place them in an air tight container or in sealed bags.
  • The air tight container or sealed bag can be placed in refrigerator which helps in retaining their freshness for few days.

Strawberries are quite healthy and are packed with amazing health benefits and this is a fruit that should be included in our daily diet as it definitely is the most healthiest fruit and wonder fruit with lots of vitamins present inside it.

What can be made out of strawberries or how can these be used:

The strawberries can be used in variety of recipes such as cakes, chocolates, ice creams, jelly making, different juices, milkshakes, it is highly used in making puddings, desserts etc…

I have seen amazing cake varieties made using strawberries and it is also used to make delicious syrups which can be used in many recipes such as cakes, fruit juices etc…

Strawberries should always be thoroughly washed before consuming.

I have already shared some of the strawberry recipes on my blog such as strawberry milkshake, strawberry smoothie and are highly requested recipes which have been posted along with video procedures.

I have shared recipe instructions for this simple and easy juice recipe which does not require much time and ingredients and can be blended in just few seconds and consumed fresh.

How to make strawberry juice recipe:

strawberry juice recipe

A quick and healthy juice made using strawberries.

  • 8-10 fresh strawberries
  • sugar – to taste / honey
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • handful of ice cubes

Strawberry cleaning:

  1. Take each strawberry, wash them well under running water, cut out the stalk of the strawberry.
  2. Take a blending jar or a juice jar, add the strawberries into it, add some sugar, ice cubes, water into the jar.
  3. Cover the lid and blend well for few minutes.
  4. Take serving glasses and pour the juice into the glasses.
  5. Garnish the juice using strawberry slices and serve chilled.
  • Adding sugar is totally optional and for a more healthy option I would suggest adding honey to the drink which turns out more healthy.
  • Adding honey or sugar is necessary as the strawberries taste slight sour and adding some sweet content balances the juice or drink completely.
  • Instead of water, milk too can be added along with some strawberry syrup or strawberry ice cream to make it more yummy and tasty.
  • This drink does not need to be strained and can be served directly by pouring into the glasses.

Hope you liked this simple and easy to do quick recipe made with just 2-3 ingredients in a handy blender. Do give us your feedback and also share your versions on making different ways of strawberry juice.

cucumber juice or cucumber drink

Usage in recipes:

Kheera/ Cucumber is always used in salads, raita recipes and here I have used it to make a juice or drink out of it which consumed once in a while helps in proper weight control.

Kheera is also used to make many other variants of refreshing drinks and is always eaten like a salad by sprinkling some salt all over it and consuming it immediately.

Cucumber juice made here is very cool, light, refreshing and slightly tangy due to lemon drops added into it. It is definitely a healthy juice without sugar and with healthy ingredients added in it.

Lemon is added to enhance the taste and make it more refreshing. Cucumber cools down our body and especially in these scorching summers it is must to eat fruits and vegetables which have much water content and are hydrating such as watermelon juice and cucumber.

Below is a simple recipe made with quite few ingredients and is mentioned in step by step detail.

Boondi raita, a creamy and flavorful yogurt dip perfect during summers which can be eaten plain or can be eaten with any rice recipe.

boondi raita recipe

Raita as we all know is a term to make dahi chutneys which are in different flavors and different varieties with a common thing in the dish is Curd also called as Yogurt.

Boondi is made using besan or chick pea flour with a savory touch to it. Boondi is small round salty balls made using besan which is a very good snack delicacy as well and we can enjoy the boondi always as a snack or a cup of coffee.

Today in this post I would like to show my readers this different kind of making a raita which is quite different from onion raita or kheera raita.

What is a Raita:

A raita is made by beating the curd well and adding some spices and herbs and mixing well and the main ingredient that is added to the dish is either onions, cucumber, boondi, pomegranate or any fruit that should be mixed into the curd and served.

We even garnish it with some dry spices such as cumin powder, red chilli powder, chaat masala powder to make it more tangy but that is totally optional.

boondi raita or boondi ka raita

Different kinds of raita:

There are several kinds of raita available and made especially in Northern India like pomegranate raita, fruit raita, tomato raita, pineapple raita and here in Hyderabad we usually make onion raita, carrot raita, tomato raita, kheera raita/cucumber raita etc…

How is raita served:

Raita is a delicacy that is usually eaten along with biryani, veg pulao or plain pulao and is often served with various kinds of biryani recipes.

Biryani is a spicy flavored rice with lots of spices, herbs and to compliment the dish, this simple and light chutney is served along with the main course dish that accompanies perfectly with flavored rice recipes.

Raita in simple terms or in simple language is a dahi chutney recipe mixed with some herbs, spices and some main ingredients like onion, cucumber or fruits.

How to eat raita:

Raita is a plain yogurt dip and if we love to eat it plain and not with any main dish then it is on us to decide as it can be eaten plain or with any main dish and it tastes equally good if eaten directly too.

Boondi raita is a good dish which can be eaten plain without requiring any main dish. It is one of the popular raita recipes made in Northern India and raitas are usually good with roti or parathas too.

I thought summer is the best time to post this yogurt dip as curd is mostly used in summers and what could be a better season than summer. The dahi dips are best with any savory snacks and also give a good relief to the tummy as well.

How to make boondi raita recipe :

boondi raita recipe, boondi ka raita

A simple dahi chutney recipe made using boondi and beaten curd.

To make herbs paste:

To make boondi raita:

  • 1 1/2 cup curd/ yogurt
  • salt – to taste
  • 1 tsp herbs paste ((mentioned above))
  • 1/2 cup boondi

Making of herbs paste:

  1. Take a blending jar, add mint leaves into it, add chopped coriander leaves, add chopped green chilies, add a pinch of salt into it.
  2. Blend it into a paste and keep aside.

Making of boondi raita:

  1. Take a mixing bowl, add yougurt/curd, add salt, beat it well with the help of a beater without any lumps.
  2. Add the herbs paste approximately a teaspoon into it.
  3. Mix it well.
  4. Add the boondi into it and give a mix.

Kadhi pakora, a punjabi style kadhi recipe into which deep fried dumplings made of besan or chickpea flour are added and served along with steamed rice.

punjabi kadhi recipe or kadhi pakora

Punjabi kadhi is a quite popular curry recipe made out of beaten curd or yogurt which is the best option to include in our daily meals during summers.

Kadhi can be made in several forms and today I have made it in a punjabi style with slight variations here and there.

Kadhi is just a curry but to make it even more delicious we add besan pakora into it which makes us eat the curry quite easily with rice or roti or paratha.

I usually come across kadhi procedures different in different states of India such as there is a gujarati kadhi, rajasthani kadhi, punjabi kadhi, hyderabadi kadhi and one common thing in all the recipes is that they all are made in curd and besan pakoras added but the spices and ingredients that are added vary slightly.

How kadhi is made: 

Kadhi making is a simple process but most of it find it difficult to be made but it is one of the simple recipes made using curd.

  • To make punjabi style kadhi, curd and besan/chickpea flour is mixed or beaten well to get rid of lumps and then water is added, mixed well and spices are added to the curd mixture and then it is given a boil.
  • The spices that are added are salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste and some herbs such as hara dhania.

kadhi pakora recipe or kadhi recipe

How to make pakora:

  • To make pakoras besan is mixed in the form of a batter along with herbs and spices and then they are basically fried in the oil by making the batter round and in biscuit shape which are fried well.
  • These pakoras are then added in the cooked kadhi and served with any main course dish such as rice or roti/chapati.

I have already shared some different kadhi pakora recipes on my blog and also kadhi recipe that is dahi kadhi which I have made in a Hyderabadi style and it is one of the most simple and delicious way of making curry recipes.

kadi pakoda or kadhi recipe

 

Today in this post I have slightly variated the making procedure of kadhi and made it in north indian style and added to it are yummy besan dumplings but we can also make other kinds of dumplings which are healthy and good to taste such as palak pakoda, methi pakoda etc…can be added served.

Unfortunately, there is no video procedure to this particular recipe but would love to add them as I update my videos but I have shared the written recipe with every minute detail for my viewers to read and understand.

  9. Give a good mix.
  10. Take a kadai, add oil into it and heat it.
  11. Make small round dumplings of the besan batter and drop them oil.
  12. Deep fry them on low to medium flame until all the sides are fried well.
  13. Take the deep fried pakoras out and place them on an absorbent paper.
  14. This helps in removing excess oil from the pakodas.
  15. Next is the kadhi making process.

Making of kadhi:

Step 1:

  1. Take a mixing bowl, add 500 gms of curd into it and beat it well.
  2. Add besan approximately 7-8 teaspoons into the curd, keep adding little by little water gradually and mix the curd and besan without any lumps with the help of a beater or the simplest way is to blend this mixture in a mixer grinder.
  3. Now add 3 to 3.5 glasses of water into the curd besan mixture and mix it well.
  4. Beat or mix well without any lumps.
  5. Keep this mixture aside.

Step 2 (Making a spice paste):

  1. Now take a small bowl, add salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, roasted coriander seeds powder.

  5. Add finley sliced onions, slit green chillies and saute them slightly for a min or 2 but do not brown the onions.
  6. Add the spice paste which has been mentioned in step 2.

  7. Saute the masala on low flame until oil starts appearing at the corners.
  8. Now add the curd and besan batter which has been mentioned in step 1.
  9. At this stage keep stirring continuously as the batter is added to get rid of lumps.
  10. Keep stirring for few minutes.
  11. Add some fresh curry leaves and chopped coriander leaves.

  12. Adjust salt by checking it and add if required.
  13. Bring the kadhi to a boil.
  14. Cook the kadhi for 15 to 20 minutes on low flame.
  15. Switch off the flame.
  16. Add the deep fried pakoras into the kadhi.
  17. Serve the kadhi with hot cooked rice or roti or paratha
  • Firstly, in order to save time one can start making the kadhi while the pakora batter is rested for sometime.
  • It appears as a lengthy recipe but, time management helps in making the curry quicker.
  • One one side boil the kadhi and on the other hand make the pakoras but be very careful. This way the dish can be done quickly.
  • If the serving people are just 3-4 then reduce all the quantities and ingredients to half of the mentioned quantities.
  • While frying the pakoras never deep fry them on high flame and doing so keeps the pakoda raw and tasteless from inside. Always fry them on low to medium flame.
  • Stirring is important while making the kadhi to avoid lumps.

Mango milkshake, one of the best drinks or a milkshake made with one of the best fruits available in summers here in Indian country and in several other countries where mangoes can be easily available.

Mangoes give us lots and lots of memories and make us nostalgic as we all have some strange stories attached with mangoes or plucking mangoes from our neighborhood or through an unknown place.

When I was a child I always used to wait for the mangoes to fall from trees and would run to grab them before anyone could get a hand on it.

Mangoes are loved by one and all and this is the season we always wait to make various mango recipes. I however managed to make a couple of mango recipes and hopefully shall try to update with every mango recipe possible as I continue writing blog posts.

Precautions to take while eating mangoes:

Mangoes definitely develop heat inside our body and since summers too bring in more heat due to rising temperatures, one should take great care before consuming them.

  • The best trick to get rid of the heat properties from the mangoes are to dip the mangoes in water for few hours and resting them in water for few hours before consuming can help in getting rid of the heat which mangoes bring in.
  • The mangoes should not be kept in water for a long time as the taste changes and only those mangoes should be dipped in water which are supposed to be consumed after some time.
  • If all the mangoes which are not supposed to be eaten are placed in water and not consumed then the mango taste spoils completely.

  • Mangoes are said to help in aiding various heart diseases and also is said to reduce the risk of cancer in human beings.
  • Mangoes are good source of Iron and people who have iron deficiency should eat mangoes and become healthy.

Mangoes on the whole are very beneficial to our health and they have more benefits than mentioned above.

How to choose mangoes before buying:

  • Mangoes nowadays are ripen using chemicals and one should be very careful and buy only those mangoes that are chemical free and are fully organic and should be riped traditionally using grass.
  • The skin should be perfectly yellow in color and not green on the outside before buying ripe mangoes. If it is slighlty greenish then there are chances that the mango is less sweeter and could also taste sour.

I have tried to post raw mango recipes as well along with ripe mango recipes and would love to add more and more in the future articles.

Mango milkshake made using milk and without ice cream.

  • 1 ripe mango ((peeled and cut the flesh into small cubes))
  • handful of ice cubes
  • 2 tbsp sugar / as per requirement
  • 1 large glass of milk ((milk boiled and chilled))
  1. Take a blending jar or a juice jar.
  2. Add the mango slices into the jar.
  3. Add some ice cubes.
  4. Add sugar as per the sweetness preferred.
  5. Add boiled and chilled milk into it.
  6. Close the lid.
  7. Blend the shake well for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Take serving glasses and pour the shake into the glasses.
  9. They can be garnished with some very small mango slices or sliced dry fruits or if you would prefer ice cream then garnish with vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream.
  •  This milkshake is without ice cream and if one prefers to make this shake with ice cream then just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream into the jar before blending.
  •  If the consistency of the shake is thick then adding some more milk and blending again can give us the preferred consistency.
  •  The consistency can become thick if more mango slices are added therefore one should take care of the quantity of mango slices added during blending.
  •  Never increase the quantity of mangoes and do not add less milk and doing so makes the shake into a thick puree. Therefore, add mangoes and milk carefully and adjust sugar accordingly.
