Malaysian Brinjal Curry

Ingredients to make Malaysian Brinjal Curry

  • Brinjal/ Eggplant 250 gms
  • onions 2
  • tomatoes 4
  • green chillies 4
  • red chilli powder 2 tsp
  • ghee 1 tsp
  • Haldi/ turmeric powder 1/2 tsp

How to make Malaysian Brinjal Curry

  1. Cut the brinjal into thin long pieces. Then slice the onion, slit the green chillies and chop the tomatoes. Keep it aside.
  2. In a pan/vessel, pour in approximately 2 glasses of water and bring it to boil. Add haldi/turmeric powder and red chilli powder.
  3. Add the brinjal, tomatoes and half of the sliced onion. (Let the water level be just enough to immerse the vegetables.)
  4. Add salt as per taste, then cover with a lid and cook till the vegetables are done. (Check to see if the cooked vegetables are not too watery and forms a nice gravy.) Then remove the pan/vessel.
  5. Heat ghee in another pan, add the remaining half of the sliced onion, curry leaves and fry it. Add little salt to this and stir well.
  6. Pour in the cooked gravy and mix it well.
  7. Serve it hot with rice or roti.

My Tip:

This is an easy to make dish that takes very less time to cook. The secret is the yummy taste that brinjal achieves when cooked in water along with tomato and onion. Simple ingredients like chilli powder and tempering done with fried onion in ghee really gives it a good flavour.
