Brinjal Stirfry (Badanekaayi Palya)

I like the combination of brinjal/eggpalnt with tomatoes and onions. So I make this quick stir-fry with brinjals.
Here is the recipe for it.

  • Brinjal /Eggplant - 1 big (if using small one 5-6)
  • Onion - 1 small thinly sliced
  • Tomato - 1 small finely chopped
Spices : Red chilli powder, cumin powder and Palya podi/kara podi (optional) - 1tsp each
Tempering : Oil, cumin seeds and channadal - 1tsp each

For garnish few cilantro springs.
  1. Chop veggies thinly. Do the tempering by adding cumin to hot oil, add channadal when it starts to change colour add all the veggies. Cover and cook for 5 mins or untill its just soft.
  2. Add salt and spices,mix well and let it cook for 5 more minutes or untill all the flavour combines well.
  3. Switch off the heat and Garnish with corriender leaves. Goes well as a side dish with rice and sambar or rotis.
Enjoy !
