Eggplant Curry 2 - Brinjal Curry 2

In my mom's place, they don't make eggplant or brinjal curry with masala powder. They make it really really simple. Here is the recipe.

  1. Eggplants(Brinjal) - 2 cups (chopped into 1" sized)
  2. Coconut Oil - 1 tbsp
  3. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  6. Red chillies - 1 (acc to taste)
Take a wide pan, pre heat the oil, add mustard seeds, when it splutters add red chillies to it and saute for a minute. Now add the chopped brinjal, turmeric powder, salt and required amount of water and let it cook for 10 mts. Eggplants(brinjal) will not take more than 10 mts (most of the eggplants) to cook. When the brinjal is fully cooked, drain the remaining water and saute for a minute. Do not mash the brinjal. Serve it hot with sambar rice. This is also a side dish.
