HOW TO COOK

Wash tamarind first and microwave for 2 minutes ..Squeeze juice and keep aside.Wash brinjal and Grease with oil. roast on stove by turning all sides.This helps to cook evenly.when it looks soft and smoky remove and wait until it comes to room temperature.then Peel the skin and mash the pulp using potato masher or fork..

Take mashed brinjal in a bowl.Pour in tamarind juice and enough water.Add in finely chopped onions,salt and mix well..

Now turn on heat and put a vessel,Add oil and throw all ingredients which mentioned under TO TEMPER.. Fry well and pour brinjal tamarind mixture and mix well.Add in red chili powder as per your taste and cook for 2 minutes in low flame.Just after one boil turn off and serve hot with white rice.


MAHAS NOTES

You can use white brinjal too.

Microwaving tamarind is optional..It`s like time saving.other wise you can squeeze juice first and start the process.

You can roast brinjal in oven also.Put it on a greased baking plate and roast for 20 minutes in 180 degree C.

I don`t have green chilies in hand,so,added chili powder,if you have chillies skip red chili powder.

If you don`t have problem can add ginger garlic paste instead of garlic cloves.

Don`t boil for lone time.Just 2 minutes is enough.

Roasting brinjal is very important to get the flavor/good taste in the dish.
