Andhra is famous for it brinjal curries..I have become a fan of their curries ever since i made this brinjal poppy seed curry. I made this dish, it is more like a masala than curry. I had this with steamed rice and papad, it was delicious. You can check out my other andhra recipes too..


This curry has simple flavours but all of them are united by the creamyness of the sesame seeds, love it..So try this and let me know how it turns out for you..

  1. Did you use both white and black sesame seeds? Also, can I use the indian brinjals instead of the eggplant?
