Baigan known as Vangi in marathi or Eggplant in english . Masala fried baigan is a very common dish all over India.
My kids and husband both are not fond of baigan so I thought of trying something new with it,which can attract them 🙂 hence I scooped the fried Baigan’s with curd/dahi and it turned out to be yum yum yummy.
You can serve your family this dish as a snacks or a side dish with dal and rice.
Trust me your family will surely enjoy it especially kids as curd(yogurt) is every kids weak point or you can say “favorite” 🙂
