Potato Eggplant Curry/  Aloo Baigan  Sabzi( Dry)
When we talk about potatoe recipes then I guess my blog would run out of space. Its verstility makes it a king of vejetables in the culinary World. This king goes well with any  other vejetable and makes it an extraordianry dish.
           Egg plant makes this dish colourful and tasty.  Do you know that  eggplant received its name because the vegetable resembled goose eggs and  I also had read a funny thing about Eggplant that  Europeans in the 16th century believed that eggplants caused insanity and it called it as Mad Apple.
