I have learnt this recipe from a close friend of mine.
This is one of the finest recipes of Brinjal dishes. This suits well with Sambar, mor kuzhambu and mutton kuzhambu also.

கத்தரிக்காய் பிரட்டல்:


Tender brinjals-8
Turmeric powder- half sp
Chilli powder- 2 tsp
Ground tomato- half cup
Gingelly oil- 4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Chopped coriander- 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Curry leaves- a few
Chopped coriander- 2 tbsp

Grind the following to a coarse paste:

Shredded coconut- 1 tbsp, ripe tomato- half cup, small onion-8, garlic flakes-6, fennel seeds- half sp, curryleaves-15


Cut each brinjal into four pieces lengthwise.
Add the chilli powder, turmeric, salt and the ground paste to it and mix well.
Heat a kadai and pour the oil.
Add the ground tomatoes with the greens and fry them on slow fire until the oil floats on surface.
Add the brinjals and cook them on medium fire until they are done.
The tasty brinjal pirattal is ready now to serve!!
