Tips :

I usually keep proportion of eggplant and potato 50-50. But it can be changed according to your choice. You may reduce the quantity of brinjal or potato. Many times I add less brinjal than potato. 

I have not removed the potato skins. You may remove the potato skins if you wish with a peeler.

If you have boiled potatoes ready, you may use them and the cooking time will be reduced further.

Along with or instead of garam masala, you may add cumin powder (Jeera powder) and coriander powder (dhania powder).

Add more water if you like. If you are using boiled potatoes, add cut eggplants in the pan first. When they are cooked, add boiled and cut potatoes and all the other spices etc.
