Cut the brinjal into thin slices…as I have not deep fried this so I cut into little thin slices…

Muastard oil and brinjal just heavenly combination.

Now shallow fry this till it turns golden color and crispy from both sides.(while shallow frying make the flame Low).
As it finally goes and mix with dahi or curd…so I feel no need to deep fry this.
Whisk the curd properly so that no lumps will be there.
