Brinjal ..hmmm..Like many i am not a big fan of brinjal .. ..But when i had this dish in a restaurant i just loved it ..After few days saw this recipe in Lakshmi Nair’s book ..I made this dish with small changes and it was so nice ..It tastes so good and no one will say that its brinjal ……So u guys u also just try it and tell me ur opinion .. 🙂
Ginger-medium piece(chopped finely)
Spring Onion-1/2 cup
Peel and cut the brinjal into long pieces as of french fries ..
Properly wash using salt water ..Drain well
Make a think batter and dip the brinjal pieces into this .
The pieces should be properly covered with the batter ..
Heat oil in a kadai
Deep fry the brinjal pieces
Keep them aside .
Heat oil in a pan and add ginger,garlic ,celery and green chilly ..Saute them for few minutes .
When the raw smell goes simmer the fire and add soya sauce ,tomato sauce ,sugar and salt ..Saute for 2 minutes
Then add half cup f water into this and allow to boil
When it become thick gravy add the fried brinjal and stir well .
Saute for another 5 minutes ..The gravy must be covered all over the pieces ..
Finally add spring onion and remove from the fire ..
Serve hot with fried rice or simply as snack ..
Note : The amount of sauces I mentioned here is for children ..If u want this to be more spicy u can add more chilly and reduce the amount of tomato sauce ..Its upto ur taste ..And if u want the brinjal to me more crispy ,u can fry them again in the same oil just b4 adding to the sauces .Don’t burn them 😉 ..Be careful to drain them with in few seconds …
