Aloo baingan ki sabji - potatoes and brinjal cooked with onion, tomatoes and masalas

This is a vegetable that we have regularly for lunch with rotis and curds. In most punjabi households, rice is not common. Rotis are eaten for lunch and dinner. Most punjabi vegetables are made with the same method. gobhi all, baingan aloo, matar aloo etc aste great with rotis. It tastes yummy with rice too.
