White aubergine is found in various parts of Chattisgarh. I wasn’t familiar to this white beauty until i myself went to shop for vegetables in a local market near to my house and was amazed to see white aubergines. Anticipation built up and i just couldn’t resist myself from asking the lady vegetable seller that how is this cooked. Though she told me a very basic recipe of it which she probably use to make , but somewhere i thought that this would taste even great when teamed up with pickled spices.
In my home, pickles are often supplied by my mom, i am very poor in this particular department. And we at home are so bad in eating pickles that we first finish off all the pieces, specially mango and later realize that the jar is now full with the masala only. So if this happens with you as well, then reserve it all for the achari recipes. Trust me it tastes heaven. I used some of my left over pickle masala today for making these white aubergines. Though the white turns into light green after cooking, may be because of the turmeric it get’s stained, hence i though to share the pictures of the raw ones too…just to show to all those who haven’t seen the white aubergines before. Aren’t they gorgeous ????
