I have a brinjal gosthu recipe which uses a powder that has to be added to it. My MIL’s chidambaram brinjal gosthu recipe. Since no one likes brinjal in our family, my MIL grinds the brinjal coarsely and makes that gosthu. The speciality is that roast ground powder and I cant match her gosthu’s taste even now. She makes the consistency and taste perfectly. Even the brinjal haters of our family eats that. She makes it for idli only. My mom’s side gosthu-s are so simple and easy, yet its a kind of tasty. She makes it with ease. No grinding part, no tamarind. And there are quite a few variations in it. This is one my mom makes with only brinjal for pongal as pongal gotsu. But when I came to Singapore, once my sister in law here made this one which is very similar to moms with potato and carrot. So now a days I make a this for pongal. You might have seen this in my pongal post with potato and carrot alone and this post in my breakfast menu. I got few message and mails if I had posted it or not. I think even after this, I cant delay posting this one. Though its simple and easy to make, it tastes perfect for pongal and even idli dosas.
And before going to the recipe, I have an exciting news to share. My recipes have been published as a supplementary book in the popular Kungumam THOZHI tamil magazine. I spent a quality time in this and took it serious and made it possible to send it very short period of time. Though I may not share all the recipes, I will sure share few interesting recipes from this collection, so stay tuned!!
Serve with idli, dosa or pongal the best. Easy and yummy gotsu for your main dish!
