I have an aversion to eggplants..So I use them only in preparing sambhars..My husband suggested this recipe and I tried it yesterday..It tasted really good..We had it with chapathis and it tastes good with pulao and ghee rice too..
Grind the following Ingredients
1 medium sized onion
3 pods of garlic
Cilantro and curry leaves a few sprigs
1 tomato medium sized
3 green chillies
Turmeric powder, a pinch
Chilly powder 1 teaspoon
Cinnamon, cloves and cardamom
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in pressure cooker and fry a big sized sliced onion..Then, add around 8 to 10 cut small brinjals or 3 large eggplants..
After frying for 2 minutes, add the ground paste and fry for a minute.
Now add 1 tablespoon coriander powder and 1/2 teaspoon Jeera/Cumin seeds powder and salt, keep frying for a minute.
Take care to add a tablespoon of water if it gets sticky when frying the above.
Now, close the cooker and leave the cooker to give one whistle.
In the end after opening the cooker, add a tablespoon of beaten curd and add some chopped coriander leaves.
The dish is ready to serve....Enjoy !
