In our place there is a shop named Ambur Briyani, they serve one of the best briyani in town. I love it a lot. One of the accompaniment which they serve with the briyani is brinjal dalcha. It taste tangy spicy and taste heavenly with that. I always wanted to make that whenever i make briyani. That one is a vegetarian side dish. But we have a non veg version of that made with mutton and veggies. I got that recipe from my friend jafrin.When i gave it a shot it was so yummy.
When i asked her what is the best dish which can be served with it. She insisted me to try it with ghee rice. But she told it taste equally good with briyani, pulav, parota and anything you like. I made some mutton pulav and served this with it. I had some leftover curry, we also had it with dosa that night, it was yummy. So here you go to the recipe.
