Roasted eggplant fry - From my Inlaws kitchen

Whenever someone mentions roasted eggplant, the first thing that comes to mind is Baingan Bartha. But one of the frst dishes I learnt to prepare at my inlaws, was a dish with roasted eggplant which is extremely simple to prepare and finger licking good. So continuing with my theme of eggplant based dishes here's the recipe.

1 large eggplant
2-3 green chillies
1 medium sized onion
1/8 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 tsp Chilli Powder
Salt to taste

For Tempering
1 Tbsp oil
1/4 tsp channa dal
1/4 tsp urad dal
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
1-2 dried red chillies
pinch of asefotedia

Roast the eggplant on an open fire. (Roasting it on hot charcoals will enhance the flavor of the dish). Place it in cold water, peel, mash and keep aside. In a frying pan, add oil, channa dal and urad dal, once dal starts turning reddish brown, add the cumin seeds and mustard seeds, once mustard seeds start to pop, add the red chillies and asefotedia, then add onions,green chillies, salt and turmeric powder. Reduce flame and saute until onions are soft. Finally add the mashed roasted eggplant and chilli powder, mix thoroughly, saute for 2 min more and enjoy with hot white rice or rotis
