Brinjal Chutney Recipe - Kathirikai Chutney for Idli & Dosa

This is my latest invention, oneday i was looking in the fridge early in the morning for some onions and tomatoes to make a chutney. Sadly i ran out of veggies. There was just couple of brinjal left in the fridge. I took that out and made a delicious chutney using that and served it with idli. The taste was just yum..

My hubby who is a brinjal hater loved this one. It was tangy, spicy and delicious. Taste yum with either idli or dosa, even you can serve it with curd rice or plain rice.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
