Simple Brinjal Fry – Quick Sidedish for Rice

You all know that I love brinjals / eggplants whatever you call it, but amma loves it more than anything. She can have it all day without any hesitation. And She makes it traditionally as a poriyal or avial..But I always make it this way.

A simple way to make a delicious sidedish for rice..Actually I served it with bisibelabath-iyengar style which I will post tomorrow. I asked my friend who gave that recipe, what sidedish can I make for bisibelabath. Without any delay she told me to make some crispy brinjal fry and papad and gave a additional instruction that “nothing can get better than that”..Should I think anymore, So here it is…

So here I deliver the recipe..I hope you will love it and let me know the result.


Brinjals  / Eggplant – 6

Rice Flour-4 tblspn

Chilli Powder-2 tsp

Coriander Powder / Malli Podi -1 tblspn

Salt to taste

Oil  for pan frying


Wash brinjals and cut off the top. Now slice this thinly into circles.

In a shallow plate, take rice flour and add in chilli powder, coriander powder and salt and mix well.

Now take each brinjal slices and dip in the riceflour mixture and set aside in a plate. Do exactly same with everything.

Now heat 2 tblspn of oil( for one batch) in a frying pan and drop the brinjals one by one..

Cover with a lid and let it cook for 5 mins on one side. Now remove the lid and cook it for another 3 mins on other side on a low flame.

Remove the brinjals to a plate and continue the process until you end.

Serve hot with rice and any gravy.

Take all your ingrediants
Slice the top of the brinjal
and slice into circles
take riceflour in a plate

A squeeze of lemon will be good
