Bengan aur Loki key sabzi (Eggplant and Bottle gourd Mixed Vegetable)

This is my own invented recipe. These days I am on fiber diet and mostly I try to eat fruits and vegetables. Since Eggplant is a good source of fiber i.e. 100gms of egg plant contains 3 gms of fiber. So I decided to have eggplant (or brinjal). I also had a bottle gourd in hand so decided to combine these two vegetables. And it really turned great. The recipe contains only 3 table spoons of oil and is very simple and easy to make.
