Saute on a low flame for about 5 mintues, stirring continously. Add the chopped tomato, mashed brinjal, chilli powder,turmeric powder and salt. Cook covered on a low flame for about 5 mintues.

Mash the brinjal thoroughly with the back of a ladle and add the remaining onion. Cook uncovered on a high flame for 2 mintues, stirring continuously. Add the garam masala and mix well.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and green chillies.
