1.Grill the Eggplants . I used cast iron pan to grill them.But you can grill them whole in oven or gas stove and in that case peel skin as it may be charred.Once they are grilled ,remove them and let it cool ,then blend it to a chunky to fine paste according to your likeness.

2.Then in the same pan , add some oil and add cinnamon,cardamom, bayleaf , staranise and cloves and then cumin seeds and saute them till aroma is released then add finely chopped onions and saute them well,then add ginger garlic green chilly paste and saute them till all the raw smell is gone.

3.Then add finely chopped tomatoes and saute them well.
