Wash and slit the brinjals in a + as shown in the picture below leaving the stem intact.
Heat 1/4 cup oil and shallow fry the brinjals till it becomes soft. Keep it aside.(Traditionally it is deep fried, but I did not want to do that).

Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin/jeera powder, garam masala powder salt required and cook for a few minutes.
Then add the ground masala paste and cook it well for a few more minutes stirring continuously.
