Kathirikai poriyal(Eggplant curry) is the side dish that i love to have with Mor Kozhambhu.Here is this simple Eggplant curry recipe.
1 big Egg Plant(chopped into small pieces)
1/2 tablespoon of coriander powder
1/2 tablespoon of Red chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1/2 tablespoon of Mustard
1/2 tablespoon of Urad Dal
2 tablespoon of Oil
Heat some oil in a saute pan.Add mustard seeds and once it splutters add the urad dal and fry it.Then add the Chopped Egg plant along with turmeric powder,red chiili powder,coriander powder,salt and mix well.Cover the pan and cook in medium flame for 5-6 mins.Since it is not a deep fried curry type,this eggplant curry or kathirikai porial would be soft.Cook until done.The curry is ready to be served !
