Vankaya Velluli Karam Koora / Brinjal Curry

Hi Friends, Missing from the blogging scene from so many days, Busy in packing and unpacking of the things, finally moved to Atlanta safely and presently staying in Duluth in a hotel room, this week-end planning to search for a rental apartment and will try to move over there. Atlanta is good , but it is too hot for a person coming from California , definitely they will have a sunstroke, night till 9:00 no sunset and till 10:30 the heat wave will be there , Oh my god… seriously me and raj were like going crazy with this weather and humidity over here . Without AC in the room and in the car we cannot stay for even 2 min. so just imagine the heat around here,  Getting slowly adjusted with time difference between LA and Atlanta , Finally , today I found some time and thought of starting the blog once again , but as I  am staying in a hotel , there is no dedicated line for internet and the line is too slow , so couldn’t write anything new. This one is one of my older drafts , so thought of just posting it. Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients :

  •  Brinjal/Egg plant – 2( medium sized )
  • Onion -1 (medium size) (finely chopped)
  • Curry leaves- few
  • Garlic- 2 pods (DO NOT REMOVE LAYERS)
  • Red chilly powder-  2 tsp
  • Jeera- 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Oil-1 tbsp
  • Haldi/Turmeric--a pinch
  • Kothimeer-a few handfuls
  • Salt to taste


  • Finely chop the brinjal pieces into small cubes and place them into water , otherwise the pieces will loose their colour.
  • Heat oil in a pan , add Cumin seeds/Jeera  , Mustard seeds, curry leaves ,haldi and let them splutter up.
  • Add Chopped Onions and stir fry them till soft, now slowly add  the brinjal pieces taken out from the water.
  • Mix well the onions and brinjal with a spatula and cover it with a lid and let  it cook under low flame for 5 min by stirring in the middle.
  • Once the brinjal gets cooked, add salt to it and mix well and let it cook for another 2 mins, Mean while , prepare the masala.
  • Take a small jar of the grinder/mixer , add Jeeera seeds, Garlic Pods, red chilly powder,  little pinch  of salt and grind  it to a coarse powder .
  • Add this powder to the cooked brinjal-onion mixture and mix well with a spatula , cover it with a lid and cook for 2- 3 mins.
  • Brinjal Curry is ready to be served hot with Rice/Roti.

 Note: while cooking brinjal if it becomes sticky underneath to the pan, add some water on the top of the lid and cook under low flame.
