Brinjal Fry

This recipe is one of my most favourite one. This is prepared with my most favourite veggie BRINJAL.

This was taught to me by my friend Sheeba's mom in Pondicherry. This was like 6 years back when I had been to Pondicherry on a Business Trip. I used to stay in Rangapillai street in Pondicherry. This is where Sheeba came to spend some time with me and her stay continued for 2 weeks when we decided to invite her mom and sister to spend the weekend with us. This recipe was prepared by her mom, with a simple Theeyal and Rice.

And as a keralite, her mom's recipes were prepared with coconut and that was quite rich. But this one was a very simple but a delicious side dish.. So here follows the recipe :

Purple big brinjals - 2
red chilli powder - 1 tsp
salt to taste
dry mango powder - 1/4 tsp
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
oil - to fry

- mix all the ingredients together except for brinjal and make a fine paste
- slice the brinjal into thin rounds
- apply the masala well
- leave it for 20 mins
- in a tava add oil, add the brinjal rings
- close the tava using a lid
- leave it to simmer for 3 mins
- then turn it over and add oil
- again close the tava with a lid and leave it for 3 - 4 mins
- prepare all the brinjal rings the same way- Serve
