Brinjal curry recipe

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 .


  • Brinjal --  5 
  • Onion -- 1
  • Tomato -- 2 
  • Green chilli --  2  
  • Curry powder  --  1 & 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric -- 1/4 tsp
  • Corn flour -- 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped coriander leaves  -- 1 tblsp
  • Curry leaves  --  1 sprig

  • Chop onions,tomatoes and slit the green chillies...keep aside.
  • Cut brinjals into medium sized pieces as shown in picture and keep immersed in water till you cook.
  • Heat a kadai with oil and add the tempering items,followed by onions,chillies,curry leaves and fry till onions are translucent.
  • Add tomatoes with salt and cook till tomatoes turns just mushy.
  • 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.
  • Granish with chopped coriander leaves...goes well with plain rice and variety rice!!

Time took approximately - 25 mins
This dish I am sending to Grindless gravies event ... conducted by our blogger friend SRA....from the blog When my soup came alive!!!Still there's more than a month's time..Then too I can't wait to send this to her event "Grindless gravies".

    Hima,Usha & bharathy
    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..:)

  30. Hi RAK'S Kitchen! Brinjal curry looks delicious.

  31. Thanx seena and Daily meals for ur compliments!!

  32. Ummmm, lots of rice or roti to eat with this :)

  33. I tagged you over at my blog. I hope you don't mind and have time to answer it!

  34. lovely brinjal curry

  35. Lovely recipe! I feel this will go well with rotis too!:) Nice entry rajeshwari!

  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
