There is a restaurant called "Muthu's curry" here in Singapore...where we had a chance to try this "brinjal Masala"(how they named the dish)....Even my husband who doesn't likes Brinjal said it tastes good...And in this muthu's curry we can find more of chinese people visiting as a regular customers ....So if any one who in future have a chance to visit Singapore, don't forget to go to Muthu's curry ....
I tried to make this curry after tasting this in that restaurant...It came out not exactly....but similar to that....My hubby too certified its good...;D .

  • Add 1 1/4 cup of water and add turmeric,coriander leaves and curry powder to it and bring to boil.
  • Add the cut brinjal , stir well and cook covered for 5-7 minutes...till brinjal gets cooked soft..
  • At the end if needed add corn flour to thicken the gravy.

    Thanx for the compliments

  24. Hi Raks,

    First try your version of this curry and I will visit Muthu's Curry soon.
    I live in singapore.
    I like the open kitchen concept in Muthu's curry.
    Lovely entry, thanks for sharing this recipe.

  25. That's a great idea: using a tiny bit of cornstarch to make the gravy thick! I have to try this soon.

  26. Nupur,
    Try and then let me know...As we use tomatoe and sambhar powder and boiling for some time, the gravy becomes thick by itself..at last when we add this
    "tiny bit corn flour",It sure will do its job well;D...Even if u cant find that immediately,after it cools down surely it had that effect!!!

  27. Nice and simple recipe. Never heard about muthu's curry. will try it sometime. Thanks for sharing.

  28. Thankyou kribha for ur comments

  29. Good one, Raks! I am a brinjal fan..:)

  36. I love brinjal ...So anything would be fine with me ...This one is awesome ....

  37. thankyou all for your compliments and comments

  38. Interesting Raji. Nice entry too. Viji

  39. Hi Raji, am not much a fan of brinjal, but for those who enjoys it, sure yours wud be a great treat...

  40. Thank you Viji and Scientist

  41. I am not a great fan of brinjal, but my husband loves it.. So I make it often.. And I stumbled upon this when I was searching for new varieties. It turned out really well, he loved it :) And even I had :)

  42. This is the best recipe ever. So easy, quick and ALWAYS a huge success. My girlfriend from South India exclaimed "It tastes just like home!!" when I first made this, so this is a regular in our house. She took some to her (very picky!) colleague at work who said "it tastes like an Indian housewife made this".

    What can I say... brilliant recipe. If an untalented European like me can impress with this curry, anyone can. it's a 100 % foolproof.

    Thank you Raks!

  43. Thank God for ur blog.....i now have variety of recipes - simple, easy and yummy too! My Dad and I dont like coconut very much. Your curry without coconut section is extremely helpful.... Now i dont have to scratch my brains out to decide what to make everyday :) THANK U
