Brinjal Curry / Egg plant Curry

Well,as i got to know recently this is a famous recipe in Tamilnadu, and very well known as "Yenna Kathirikka".

5 medium sized bringals ( baby bringal are perfect )
1 big onion thinly sliced
1/2 tbsp red chilly powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp tamarind juice
2 sprigs coriander leaves
1/2 cup water ( adjust accordingly)
salt to taste

For grinding:

1/2 tbsp grated coconut
5 shallots
3 garlic pods
3 red chillies ( adjust according to taste)
4 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp jeera
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pinch turmeric powder

For tempering:

1/2 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
2 red chillies
curry leaves


Wash and slit open the bringals and marinate with red chilly powder, turmeric powder and salt with very little water for a few mins.
Heat 2tbsp oil in a pan and saute the bringals until half done and all the sides turn a dark colour, and keep it aside.
In the same kadai saute onions till translucent.
Add the fried bringals, ground paste, tamarind juice, salt and mix well.
Add 1/2 a cup of water and let the bringal get cooked.
Add coriander leaves.
Now for the tempering, heat oil in a pan add mustard, fenugreek seeds, red chillies and curry leaves, once the mustard starts spluttering, transfer it to the dish.
Serve hot with rice.
