I am taking too long breaks to update and decorate my blog ;).  Today, my long determination of making Eggplant Lasagna came true and i am able to make successful Lasagna. Enjoy the yummy recipe. Since this is my first time, i made myself comfortable with easily available
Ingredients :
1 Big American Eggplant
1 big Onion
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
Lasagna Pasta Sheets (i bought small pkt that has 12 sheets)
'Tomato and Basil' pasta sauce
3 Thai Green Chillies
1 tsp Black pepper powder
Half bunch of finely chopped cilantro
Few mint leaves, Oregano, Kasoori Methi
Oil to saute
Salt to taste

Here is the procedure
Get the Pasta ready :
--> Boil the water, add salt and boil the pasta as u do with regular pasta.
--> Now, drain all the excess water, run some cold water, set them aside and let it dry.
--> Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, meanwhile prepare the below eggplant gravy.

Gravy preparation :
--> Add oil to a pan, let it heat up.
--> Chop the eggplant horizontally (like semi-circles) and set them aside.
--> Add chopped onion, chopped green chilli, cook until the onions are tender.
--> Kasoori methi, Oregano, Cilantro, Mint leaves and Black pepper powder can be added at this moment.
--> Now, add the chopped eggplant circles. Keep the flame in simmer.
--> Sprinkle some salt, close the lid and let the eggplant cook on simmer for atleast 10 mins.
--> Once eggplant is half done, add the 'Tomato and Basil' pasta sauce.
--> Stir altogether again, close the lid and let it cook for another 10 mins on simmer.
--> Switch off the flame once all is done. This is your eggplant gravy.

Baking - Final step of Lasagna :
--> Apply butter to the baking pan. I used the 8 in round pan as shown in the image.
--> Place some of the eggplant gravy, spread it all over the pan. This is your Layer 1 (L1).
--> Next place half  count of the boiled pasta sheets as Layer 2 (L2).
--> Now add half of the mozzarella cheese and half of the parmesan cheese as Layer 3 (L3).
--> Repeat L1, L2, L3 layers again on top of the above three layers. Remember, top most layer should be the cheese.
--> Keep the pan in heated oven and let it cook for 30-40 mins at 350 degrees F.
Thats it get the Yummy lasagna out of the oven, let it cool down a bit, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve it hot with red crushed pepper if needed.
