Roasted eggplant subzi

Roasted eggplant subzi is one of my favorite recipe from my childhood, I like to have it with pappu annam-it’s cooked toor dal mashed along with turmeric powder and salt, mixed with hot rice and ghee. My MIL make this recipe slight differently, she add little extra tamarind juice and sambar powder. Do try that too, its spicy and tangy taste goes well with white rice and papad.
