Brinjal/Egg Plant/Katharikkai Stir Fry

Actually, Brinjal is a fruit. Other names for this fruit are Eggplant, mad-apple, melongene. It is being available in different size and color. But most seen color is Purple. We would have prepared curry, Kuzhambu using Brinjal. For a change try making Stir fry. It will be fantastic. Let's see how to make.


Brinjal – 5
Coconut – ¼ cup
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Red chilli powder – 1 tablespoon
Coriander powder – 1 tablespoon
Oil for seasoning
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing


Wash brinjal and cut into small pieces. Put cut pieces into water until cooking in order to avoid getting darken.
Add Coconut, Turmeric, Red chilli, Coriander powder in a mixture jar and make coarse powder.
Heat 2 teaspoon of oil in a pan. Once oil hot add small cut brinjal pieces. Cook for 4 minutes. 

Once it is cooked, Add ground coconut powder and stir it.
Add salt as per your taste. Let it cook for another 4 minutes. No need to add water. If you feel burning, just sprinkle very little water.

Now garnish with Coriander leaves. Now Brinjal Stir fry is ready.
This will go best with Chappathi , Rasam rice and any variety rice.
