Fever has ruined our normal life since last week. Both my son and I fell ill. All my plans for Vinayaga Chadhurthi and my son’s b’day were collapsed and we celebrated in a very simple way. Now we are okay.
Sometime back, I received this award from Nupur. Thanks Nupur..
Coming to the recipe, this goes well with curd rice, especially with seasoned curd rice (thayir sadham - thalichadhu). This can also be mixed with rice and would be a perfect tangy lunch. I learnt from Vimitha to use Oven for peeling the Brinjal’s skin.
Here is the recipe..
Brinjal (small) 4
Extract from small gooseberry sized Tamarind
Tomato (small) 1
Chilli Powder ½ tsp
Coriander Powder 1tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida 1-2 pinch
Pearl Onions 3-4
Mustard Seeds3/4 tsp
Urad Dhal1/2 tsp
Peel and chop Pearl Onions. Cut Tomato into four halves.
Puree the Tomato.
Cook Brinjals in Oven until mushy. Remove and scoop the flesh out of the brinjal when cooled.
Heat Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Mustard seeds. When they complete popping up, add Urad dhal. Few seconds later, add Pearl onions, Curry Leaves.
When Onions turn golden brown, add Tomato Puree and fry till the oil separates.
Now add the Brinjals, all the Powders and Tamarind extract. Fry on a low flame till done.
Serve with Curd Rice or can be mixed with steamed Rice.
