Ground black pepper(kuti hui kali mirch)– ½ tsp or to taste
Step 1 – Heat 1 tbsp of oil, on high flame. Lower flame and arrange potato slices and cook. In another pan, drain brinjal pieces and sauté in a tbsp of oil. Add salt and toss occasionally, till slightly brown.
Step 2 – Arrange cooked potato slices in a buttered baking dish as the bottom layer, followed by brinjal slices (cooked form both sides). Sprinkle ¼ tsp ground black pepper on top of brinjal.
Step 3 – In 1 tbsp of oil, sauté green capsicum, on high flame. Add salt. Once slightly brown, spread as 3rd layer, on top of brinjal slices in baking dish.
