Take out the curd in a separate utensil, preferably in a big flat, low height utensil
Put the cumin seed, mustard seed, fenugreek seed and sesame seeds in oil to slightly fry
As soon as the cumin seed turn pinkish, pour the oil and these spices in the curd

Mix well, and then sprinkle dry-roasted cumin powder. If you have fresh cumin seed, then it can be roasted slightly and crushed, maybe by a rolling pin
Mix well, and add sprinkle red chilli powder to taste
Add salt
Now place the brinjal pieces in the curd mixure, so as to dip them
Serve cooled with roti
