Brinjal / Vazhuthananga kaalan (sambar)

When I prepared this dish, I didn't get a name to call. This curry is prepared using a mixture of spices of sambar and kaalan. Hence the name sambar kaalan.. :D This is a No Onion , No Garlic preparation and is a very thick curry which is good with rice..



Ingredients

Brinjal 4
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
chilli powder 1 tsp
asafoetida / kayam 1 small piece
kadala parippu / gram dal 2 tsps
uluva / fenugreek seeds 1/4 tsp
coconut grated 1 cup
curd 1 cup
mustard seeds
curry leaves few
coconut oil
water
salt



Method
Heat one spoon oil in a pan. Roast kadalapparippu and kayam in that until slightly red and take it out.
Cut, clean and cook brinjals with salt, water , chilli and turmeric powders.
Blend coconut with curd and roasted kadalapparippu and kayam. Blend until you get a smooth mixture. Pour this into the cooked brinjals. Mix well, check salt.and heat it. When it begins to boil switch off fire.
Heat coconut oil, splutter uluva and mustards , fry curry leaves and pour this seasoning into the curry. You can adjust the thickness by adding water according to your taste.
