Cut the brinjal in cubes (big size) and put them into water(to prevent them from being dark). Chop one onion roughly. Fry them in little oil till it becomes transparent. Let it cool for some time. Grind chilli powder, jeera, coriander seeds, tamarind and fried onions into fine thick paste. Heat oil in a kadai add one sliced onion. Fry till light brown then add grounded paste and fry till oil gets separate from it. Then add brinjal. Mix well so that masala coats the brinjal evenly.
Add half or one cup of water and close the lid. Cook till done. When the gravy thickens turn off the gas. Serve hot with rice or roti.
