Chopped fresh coriander leaves - a small bunch
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Chopped onion - 1 tbsp ( Optional)
( I add just to increase the quantity)
Green chillies - 6
( If your chillies are spicy reduce)
Garlic - 2
Jeera/Cumin - 1 tsp
Long Green brinjals - 6
(cut it into x shape half through the brinjals)
Oil - 12 tsp
Heat oil in a pan add the brinjals in medium high flame roast it till its half cooked & the outer skin has turned brown.
Now pour the ground masala into the roasted brinjals.
Sprinkle very little water,cover & cook in low flame.
In intervals gently turn the brinjals along with the masala,make sure you don't break the brinjals.
Cook till raw smell has disappeared & oil has started to leave the sides of the pan.
Switch off the stove & serve it with plain rice.
a) You can even stuff the masala into the brinjals & fry.
b) You can also cut the brinjals into strips & cook it with the masala.
c) Adding garlic & onion is optional but i love to add for extra flavour.
d) Try this recipe with any kind of brinjals.
