Eggplant Pickle


Hello, my dear friends and welcome to my cozy cooking nest. Today I will make a unique recipe of a veggie turned into a pickle only to make it tastier and super fun. I have made a pickle from eggplants and mild spices and well, it just is wonderful to taste with chapatis, tandoori rotis or naan. It is easy to make and great to taste idea and I hope you all will like it well. The recipe is as follows:—


  1. Eggplant – 250 gms.
  2. Garlic(crushed) -3 tbsp.
  3. Turmeric Powder – 2 tsp.
  4. Dry Mango Powder – 2 tbsp.
  5. Yellow Mustard Powder -3 tbsp.
  6. Achaar Masala – 3 tbsp.
  7. Roasted Five Spices Powder – 1 tbsp.
  8. Red Chilly Powder – 2 tsp.
  9. Five Spices – 1 tsp.
  10. Mustard Oil – 4 tbsp.
  11. White Vinegar – 2 tbsp.
  12. Salt – According to taste.


Step 1

Wash and cut the eggplant into medium-sized pieces and dry them in fan for five minutes.


Step 2

Now take a kadhai and add 3 tbsp of mustard oil and 1 tsp of five spices to it. When it splutters add in the cut eggplants and fry it on high flame for four minutes. Then add in the crushed garlic and fry up till half done, here again on high flame, and if it seems that oil is less in quantity then do add more of it as it is a pickle and will need more of oil. Now add in the salt,turmeric powder,dry mango or amchoor powder,roasted five spices powder,yellow mustard powder,red chilly powder,pickle or achaar masala,salt,vinegar and mustard oil and just stir the masalas twice and not for long,to mix them up,doing everything on high flame as it will enhance the taste of the pickle. Now, switch the gas off otherwise the dish will get a bitter taste. You must not over fry the pickle after adding the masalas especially the mustard powder.

Step 3 

Store the pickle in a jar and put it in strong sunlight for 2 hours and use it. It’s very close to being an instant pickle.

Our Eggplant Pickle is ready.
