Cooking with Brinjals are really easy because you can do a whole lot of stuffs with it.. I have quite a few recipe in my blog..You can check it here..This is one of my favorite dish to have with piping hot rice or with hot roti specially phulkas..They taste divine..This is so easy to make also..It requires only simple ingrediants…When brinjals are cooked in tamarind juice along with some spicy green chillies and onions, they turn into super delicious…
I hope you will give it a try and let me know how it came out..
Brinjal – ½ kg chopped finely
Onion – 1 large finely chopped
Green Chilli – 3 to 4 chopped
Curry leaves – 1 spring
Tamarind – 1 small lemon size
Salt to taste
Oil- 4 tblspn ( I used Indian Sesame Oil/ Nala Ennai / Gingelly Oil)
Take tamarind in a bowl and cover it with 2 cups of water. Let it soak for 5 mins. Now mix with your hand. Strain it and set it aside.
Heat oil in a kadai. Add curry leaves and onions and fry till they turn transparent. It will take around 2 mins.
Add green chillies and chopped up brinjals and mix well. Add salt and tamarind water and mix well.
Bring it to a boil and cover and simmer for 15-20 mins.
Now using the back of a spoon mash the brinjal till it form a very smooth and gets mushy.
Now simmer this untill all water evaporates and oil separates from this..Mix inbetween
Serve with rice or roti.
