Saunf has a strong flavour and aroma that have to be handled carefully. Generally, it imparts an enjoyable peppiness when used in small quantities but can be overpowering if used with the wrong ingredients or in excess. Saunfwale Aloo Baingan is an exception. Although a rather large dose of saunf is used here, perfectly chosen ingredients in the right proportions makes this subzi a zesty and memorable treat for your taste buds!
