In my previous posts, I shared some combination of vegetables and lentils like Spinach-lentil curry with chapati, a light and healthy meal! and Another popular lentil-veg combination: Split gram with bottle gourd.. This time I prepared Brinjal with Red lentils in our lunch with seasons fresh mango, salad and parantha.

Cooking lentils is one of the easiest and quick recipe so I try different combinations of vegetables and lentils.
Here is the recipe I want to share with you.


  • Brinjal or Eggplant 1/2 kg
  • Red lentils 1/2 cup
  • Garlic about 10 buds
  • Green chillis 2-3 nos
  • Vegetable oil 1-2 tbsp
  • Spices like turmeric powder, cumin seeds, mustard seeds, coriander powder, asafoetida, garam masala, red chilli powder, salt.
  • Lemon juice 1 tbsp
  • Green coriander leaves for garnishing.



  • Wash lentils and brinjals thoroughly twice.
  • Cut brinjals and keep them in the water to avoid turning them dark.


  • Heat oil in a kadhai or pressure cooker (I used a pressure cooker here) and add all spices and crushed garlic and green chillis.



  • Saute for a while then add brinjal and mix well cook for a couple of minutes.



  • Cook for 10 minutes on low to medium flame.

    Serve hot with any bread or steamed rice.
