Mint Thepla with Eggplant Patiala


The one constant thing I like about foodie groups on social networking websites is awesome recipes they share. I am a member of foodie group on such a social networking website. Learned so many new stuff. Theplas (a frequently viewed dish made by many members in that group) were one of them and Eggplant patiala (from a member Sudha) is another one which is now a regular once a week at my place now :)
I am sending the side dish Eggplant Patiala to Srivalli's side dish mela:

Ingredients:Mint Thepla :Wheat flour : 2 cups
Mint leaves: a handful
Yoghurt at room temperature: Enough to make a smooth dough (beware that the mint leaves add additional moisture so adjust the amount accordingly)
Onion powder to taste
Oil for greasing the thepla while roasting
Salt to taste
Eggplant patiala:

Cumin seeds : 1 teaspoon
Onion: 1 medium sized slices thin
Tomato: two finely chopped
Turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste : 1 tablespoon
Chilli powder : to taste
Garam masala: a pinch
Oil: sufficient to roast eggplant until brown
Oil: Two tablespoons
Salt to taste
How to make:Mint Thepla:Mix everything to create a smooth dough. Let it rest for 20 minutes. Make small balls from dough. Roll roti from it and roast it on a hot griddle with ghee (optional) , oil. Done. Serve with Eggplant Patiala or raita :)
Eggplant patiala:Roast eggplant until slightly brown. Keep aside. In same pan add two tablespoons oil and add cumin seeds and onion, saute until fragrant and pink, add turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste and saute well for a minute or two. Then add tomato , chilli powder, and salt. Stir until mushy , then add Eggplant, and cook covered until its all cooked. Check for seasoning, add pinch of garam masala. Serve hot with Thepla :)
Note: The dough might get kind of too stiff if cold yoghurt is added. In that case if its too late into mixing , add slightly lukewarm water.
