Brinjal Kuzhambu.


i  remember my maami preparing this . It has a mild flavour and i had noted this recipe in  my recipe book many years ago. But since i don’t cook Brinjals often i rarely make this. But for difference and variety i made this today and this blends with the sudden climate change of rains and exam stress.


Tender Brinjals – 4

Cumin – 1 tsp

Black pepper -1 tsp

Red chilli -3

Coconut milk –  2 tbls

Small onion – 7

Tamarind – a small pebble size



Soak tamarind in water and extract juice.

Cut brinjals and peel onion.

Grind together  cumin, black pepper,  small onion ( reserve few for  the kuzhambu ) together with little water .

In a heavy bottom vessel add onion and brinjal and sauté well.

Add tamarind water .

When the brinjals get cooked ,add  the ground paste .

Add salt . Finally  add coconut milk .

Serve with spicy curry or fried ones .
