Scrape the rough skin of the bitter gourd and slice them thick.
Mix 1 tsp salt into it and keep it for at least 15 minutes. Squeeze out the liquid thus formed.
Dice the brinjals into about 1 1/2 cm cubes.
Heat oil in a heavy-based pan, fry the bitter gourd over high flame, to a light brown.
Remove with a slotted spoon and fry the brinjals in the same oil, also over very high flame till it is tender but retains its shape.
Remove the brinjals and in the same oil add mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds and cumin.
When they splutter, add the bitter gourd and brinjals along with salt, turmeric, coriander, chilli powder and amchoor and mix well.
Sauté over low flame for about 5 minutes and serve hot.
