Brinjal Kulambu

  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Brinjal - 4 medium size
  • Onion - 1 large
  • garlic pods - 3
  • Curry leaves - as req
  • Mustard seeds - as req
  • chilli pdr - 1 tsp
  • Coriander pdr -1 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  • Ginger - 1 inch
  • coriander leaves for garnish
  • salt - as req

In a pan, add some oil. Once the oil is hot, add cumin seeds, and chopped onion (half onion). saute till the onion turns golden brown. To this then add ginger and also chilli pdr, coriander pdr. I replaced these two spice pdrs with some egg curry masala pdr. Saute for a minute and then switch off the flame. Once cooled, grind it to a paste.

In the same pan, add some more oil, To this add mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds splutter, add finely chopped garlic pods and the remaining half of the chopped onion. Add curry leaves and saute for sometime. When the onion turns shade, add the brinjals and saute till they get cooked well. Once thr brinjals are cooked, add the ground masala,salt and req amount of water and cook the curry for anothr 5 minutes till the oil separates from the curry. Garnish with some coriander leaves. Switch off the stove.

This goes excellent with rice, dosa and rotis.
