From a long time I am not able to post any of the traditional recipes. I felt like I am going away from the basic idea of having a Aayi’s recipe blog. Its mainly because most of my readers are non-konkanis. But there are few of them who visit my blog for traditional Konkani food. This recipe is for all those and also for non-konkanis who want to try out something different.I have learnt this dish from aayi. She prepares this with rice roti(alayle pita rotti) . Though the roti is little difficult to do, brinjal curry is very easy and takes very less time.
As far as I have seen this dish does not go with any other roti or rice. I feel rice roti and brinjal curry is an ideal combination for a breakfast.
Brinjal (chopped into squares) 2 cups
Onions(chopped) 1 cup
Coconut(grated) 1 Â½ cup
Green chilies 4-5
Tamarind pulp 1/4th tea spn
Cook brinjal pieces and onion in water(almost 4 cups of water). Do not cook this in cooker, because brinjal pieces should not become a paste.
Grind coconut, green chillies, tamarind and salt. Add this grounded masala to cooked brinjal and onion. Cook for around 5minutes till the masala is completely done. Serve hot with rice roti.
Serves : 4
Preparation time : 15min
