Egg plant Dal

Today ,my day was dull and not interested to cook elaborately.Was just mazing thru websites.Mahanandhi's egg plant dal caught my eyes .Its a very easy and elegant dish.In no time ,i did this and just remembered my grandma style curry.She asked to do with green egg plant,since i didnt have that, I tried with purplr ones.My son loved it a lot.

2.Toor dal                   -    1/2 cup
3.Onion                       -     1/2
