BRINJAL VADHAKKAL:


This is always a favourite dish for me. Though it is very simple to make, it always makes a super side dish for any kitchadi rice variety, sambar sadham and thayir sadham. We must search very tender brinjals for this.


கத்தரிக்காய் வதக்கல்;

Ingredients:

Tender brinjals-8
Ripe tomato-2
Sambar onions- a handful
Chilli powder- 1 tbsp
Tamarind- a small lime size
Salt to taste
Gingelly oil- 3 tbsp
Chopped coriander- 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder- half sp

Procedure:

Grind the tomatoes and the onions coarsely.
Soak the tamarind in a cup of warm water for half an hour and the extract its thick juice.
Heat a pan and pour the gingelly oil.
Add the ground paste with the turmeric powder and the coriander.
Cook them until the oil floats on top.
Add the sliced brinjals with salt.
Fry them for some minutes.
Then add the tamarind juice with the chilli powder.
Cook well until the gravy is thickened and the vegetable is cooked finely.
Now the delicious brinjal vadhakkal is ready!!
