Aloo Baigan (Potato-Aubergine Curry)

It's a tough job making people like veggies, and even harder to make them eat it! So what to do? How does one incorporate vegetables in their daily kitchen menu? What does one do to make their family 'like' eating vegetables? One solution to this! #CubeThatVeggie. Yes! Use Knorr chicken cubes, in different veggie recipes to get that oomph, that flavor everyone's been looking for! I will be sharing a series of veggie recipes for you all to try out using Knorr chicken cubes! I will be posting one recipe each day for an entire week! My recipes will be diverse, and belonging to different cuisines: Pakistani, Continental, Chinese and many more! So gear up, something exciting is coming up and stay tuned to The Crazy Chef!

#1 Aloo Baigan


Aubergines (preferably round ones), 2 cups, cubed
Potatoes, 2 cups, cubed
Knorr chicken cubes, 2
Tomatoes, 1 cup, diced
Salt 1 tsp (or to taste)
Red chili powder, 2 tsp, leveled (or to taste)
Turmeric powder, 2 tsp, leveled
Oil 1/2 cup
Green chilies, whole, slit into two, 4
Ginger, crushed, 1 tbsp
Garlic, crushed, 1 tsp (optional)
Water, 1 cup


Heat oil in a pot. Add ginger, garlic and tomatoes. Stir fry for a good 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat. Now add the cubed aubergines, potatoes, salt, red chili powder, turmeric powder, Knorr chicken cubes and 1 a cup of water. Increase the heat and let the water come to a fierce boil, then lower the flame again and cover, and cook till the potatoes are just done; about 9-12 minutes. Then right at the end, add the green chilies, mix and serve!

You can also make this dish in a pressure cooker to save time. After frying the tomatoes and ginger-garlic, I add everything and close the lid of the cooker and cook for 5-7 minutes, or till the first whistle starts to blow. Take it off the heat, open and mix in the green chilies and serve!

*I personally don't like my vegetables overcooked, so the aubergines or the potatoes aren't very mushy, if you'd like to cook them more, you can definitely go ahead with your preference!
