Kathirikai Kari
   Back after a hectic trip to the most awaited wedding in the family. Thanks to the fellow blogger friends,who poured in hearty comments generously though I was not visiting your blogs for past 3 weeks Applause. And coming to the recipe, this is another trademark recipe of my MIL. I learnt this recipe from her and this time I wanted to click pictures while she makes the curry and wanted to blog it,unfortunately could not.She told the recipe and method and asked me to blog later. She made this for me specially on the day we were leaving back to SG,how sweet Batting Eyelashes !!

Ingredients

Brinjal 10
Garlic 10 flakes
Onion 1
Tomato 2
Sambar powder 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp
Salt As needed
Coconut oil (optional) 1 tsp
To temper
Oil 2 tblsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Urad dal 1 tsp
Channa dal 2 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig

கத்திரிக்காய் கறி

Method

  1. Cut brinjal length wise,onion length wise and chop the tomatoes.Peel garlic and if the flakes are big,cut them into two.
  2. Boil brinjal with garlic along with salt,turmeric and sambar powder(you can replace sambar powder with red chilli powder too) Brinjal gets cooked very soon so take care not to over cook them.After done,drain them and keep a side.
  3. boil boiled
  4. Heat a pan/kadai with oil and temper with the items given under the ‘To temper’ table. Fry onions till transparent and add the tomatoes with required salt.
  5. Temper tomato
  6. When tomatoes turn mushy,add the boiled brinjal, mix well and cook in medium flame until the oil separates from the curry and the masala turns brown here and there. Do not turn frequently,just let it brown evenly.
  7. add brinjal Browned
  8. Serve as accompaniment for rice…!
Brinjal recipe curry
Notes
  • You can try cooking the brinjal in the pan directly,rather boiling it and adding separately. Next time I am going to try that to simplify the work …
  • Try mixing this with ghee/sesame oil with hot steamed rice,tastes excellent!! 
  • You have to be generous in adding oil to this curry(my maami says)

  47. Boiling the brinjal with water is faster than cooking in the kadai but it wont work if you attempt to cook it with dry spice. Nice variation of boiling with water.
