There are many varieties we can prepare with brinjal...Each variety got unique taste.  This is a simple fry with curry powder.

  • Brinjal : 1lb
  • Salt
  • Oil: 2 tb sp oil
  • Curry powder: As needed
For koora podi(curry powder):
  • Urad Dal: 1 cup
  • Channa Dal: 1/2 cup
  • Coriander seeds: 1/4 cup
  • Red chillies: 10-12
  • Cumin seeds: 1 tsp
  • Methi seeds: 1/2 tsp
  • Dry roast all ingredients under koora podi till they turn into brown color. Take off from the heat and leave it till they come down to room temperature.
  • Grind them into coarse powder along with enough salt.Keep this powder aside.
  • Now wash and chop brinjal in squares and keep them in salted water.
  • In a pan add oil and fry brinjal .When they are half done add enough koor podi and fry till done.
Serve with plain dal or rasam and ghee.
Note: Alternatively you can stuff this powder in brinjal.The curry powder can be stored for future use.
