  • In a large bowl, toss together the eggplant rounds with 2 tablespoons of oil. Set aside.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix together the amchoor, cumin, coriander, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, and salt. Set aside.
  • Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, the onions, garlic, and ginger. Sauté until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
