Potato Brinjal Roast | Aloo Baingan Sabzi


This yummy potato brinjal roast/Aloo Baingan Sabzi is another one of my mothers special dish, which was a part of all of our get togethers. It was liked by all. I got to like brinjal/eggplant because of this dish. Do try this out for your family. It goes well with chappati, parotta or my favourite way to have it is, in a sandwich.

Food for Soul

“Games can’t be won unless they are played,
And prayers can’t be answered unless they are prayed.
So no matter how busy or crowded your day,
Make it a practice to take time to pray.

And never start wondering if God heard your prayer,
Or if He is able to take care of your care.
Just tell Him your problem and be not dismayed,
If His answer is sometimes deferred or delayed.
For God never hurries, yet He’s never too late,
But He often tests us when He asks us to wait.

And there is no problem too great or too small
God has the wisdom to take care of them all.
Not always the way that we most want Him to,
But always the way that will prove best for you.

We ask Him for pleasure, enjoyment and health,
Laurel and honours and prestige and wealth.
But instead of a crown He sends us a cross,
And instead of rich gains, we are made poor by loss.
But great is our gladness and rich our reward,
If we trust in the judgment and will of the Lord.” (Helen Steiner Rice)

  When we cannot understand why things happen the way they do, or when we do not get an answer to our prayers, we must do what Jesus did on the cross. After He had prayed asking the Father, ” My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?“, and did not get an answer from heaven, Jesus said, ” Father into Thy hands I commit My spirit“. This is what we should do too – commit our cause to Him.  –  Zac Poonen 

God be with you!
