Kathirikai Pulikuthi Curry -VoW -Brinjal Curry

This is so very simple and easy to prepare. For brinjal lovers this is a yummy recipe. Its is very tangy and spicy at the same time .This would be my entry for the event Vegetable of the week hosted by Pooja-Creative Ideas ..Here it goes !!



Raw Materials Required

Brinjal - 5-6 nos
Red Chilli - 1 tsp
Dosai Mulga podi -2 tsp
Sambhar Powder -2 tsp
Salt as desired
Tamarind -2 lemon size balls
Oil -3 tsp
Mustard Seeds -1 tsp
Urdh dhal -1/2 tsp
Hing a couple of pinches

Preparation Style

Wash the brinjal and cut four slice of the it. Do not cut through the brinjal because you need to fill in the masala powder. On the other side mix all the powder and salt together. Fill each brinjal with a couple of spoons of the powder and set it aside. Soak the tamarind in water for a couple of hours before preparing the dish.

In a small kadai add oil and mustard seeds. Allow it to crack and the urdh dhal and hing. Then slowly add the brinjal. Add the tamarind water to it . See to that the brinjal is soaked in the tamarind water. Let the gas be on low flame and cook for about 20-25 mts time. Do not disturb the brinjal while cooking because it make break .The tamarind liquid would reduce itself and shrink to a thick paste. Once you see the paste is thick and the brinjal is cooked off the gas and serve it with rice. Enjoy!!!!!
