Toast the sesame seed, poppy seed, peanuts and cumin seed in a dry pan until fragrant

Grind the seeds and mix into a thick paste with National Achar Gosht Masala and half a cup of water.

Make deep cuts in the aubergine and stuff with the paste.

Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the curry leaves.

When the leaves release their aroma, add the aubergine and any remaining paste and cook on low heat for half an hour.
