Dry red chilies – 4-5
Sesame seeds --- 1 tea sp
Cinamon – 1/2 inch piece
Cloves – 2
Onion – 1 small cut in to small pieces
Oil --- 1 tea sp
Heat oil in a pan and fry all above ingredients one by one and grind with tamarind and little water in to a smooth paste
Slit the brinjals in to 4 (don't cut them just slit till half and leave the stem)
Heat 1 tab sp oil in a pan add brinjals and fry till the colour changes remove and keep a side.
Add chopped onion to the same oil and fry till light pink colour then add chopped tomato and fry till tomato become soft
Then add turmeric ground masala and salt to tasete mix well and cook till oil comes out
Now add fried brinjal and 1 cup water mix well and cover with a lid and let it cook till gravy becomes thick(it will take 7-10 min)

If you don't like the sharp ness of the masala then don't grind cinnamon and clove with masala paste can add them to the gravy whole before onion can also add 3 cardamom also this will give a very nice aroma to the gravy
