  1. Wash the brinjal and dry with a kitchen towel.
  2. Grease the brinjal's skin with oil and roast it over a low flame (like you would do for Baingan ka Bharta). Keep turning the brinjal over the flame so that it is evenly roasted.
  3. When its skin has blackened on all sides, take the brinjal off the flame, sprinkle water all over it, and leave it aside to cool.
  4. Once it has cooled down, peel the skin off the brinjal and mash the remaining pulp.
  5. Place this pulp in a bowl and add the chopped onions, hari mirch, imli pulp, gud, and salt. Mix thoroughly to get a thick paste.
  6. Next, add enough water to get a thin, fluid consistency. Keep a check on the gud and make sure that it dissolves completely.
  7. In a pan, heat the oil on a high flame. Add the rai in it and when they begin to splutter, add the jeera and the urad dal. Keep stirring till the dal turns brown.
