So after success with Okra and Ivy Gourd I tried the same recipe and method with Brinjal and it was delicious. We already like brinjal and I cook it quite often. I am yet to post any brinjal recipes and this is my first. Give it a try and you will love it. It tastes as a great accompaniment and side dish with rice and curry of choice. You can serve it with any Indian bread too.

Here is the recipe..

Serves 2

Ingredients :

Ingredients :
Brinjal - 250 grams
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
Garlic - 5 cloves
Chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon or as per taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds- 1/2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Whole dry red chilli - 2
Curry leaves - 6
Oil - 1 1/2 Tablespoons

Method :
1. Wash Brinjal. I used small round blue brinjals. Cut and discard the crown. Cut the brinjal vertically into 4 pieces and then cut into wedges. Let the pieces remain in water till added.
2. In a cooking vessel heat oil and reduce to medium flame.
3. Add mustard seeds and once they splutter add cumin seeds.
4. Add curry leaves, dried red chillies and garlic cloves.
5. Fry for about a minute and then add onions.
6. Fry the onions till they turn translucent.
7. Add brinjal pieces, chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt and mix well.
8. Stir for 3-4 minutes. Reduce flame to low.
9. Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt and let it cook 5 minutes stirring regularly.
10. Reduce the flame to low and keep frying till brinjal turns soft and a little brown. Make sure not to burn. Roast for about 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy Brinjal fry.
