Who doesn’t love the flavour of brinjal ,when fried ?Another simple dish which goes very well with rice and curd,its my favorite in the quick fix menu.
Small Brinjal sliced – 2
Onion sliced thin- 1
Curry leaves – a sprig
Chilly powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1/2 tsp
(Instead of chilly powder and turmeric,you can also use Sambar powder for a change)
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Make a thick paste with chilly powder and turmeric powder,adding little water.Add this paste to the brinjal slices and mix them well such that each slice is coated with the masala.Shallow fry it in batches,turning both sides until brown.Drain it to a tissue paper and keep aside.As an alternative,you can even broil it for 5-10 mts each side.
Heat little oil(use the leftover oil from shallow frying) in a pan,and saute onion and curry leaves until onion turns translucent.Add it to the fried brinjal slices.Mix and serve with rice.
