How to Make Brinjal Masala Kuzhambu

  • Soak the tamarind in hot water and extract the juice.
  • Wash and cut the brinjals lengthwise into 4 or 6 pieces and keep them in water until use.
  • In a kadai/pan, add a few drops of oil and roast the channa dal, fennel seeds and coriander seeds for a minute.
  • Add the coconut and stir.
  • Cool down the mixture and grind with a very small piece of cinnamon and water to prepare a smooth paste.
  • In another kadai, heat oil and temper with cardamoms and cloves. Add the onion and fry until it turns brown.
  • Add the tamarind extract (total water 3 cups), salt, turmeric, sambar powder and the brinjals.
  • Boil until the brinjals get cooked.
  • Add the dal-coconut paste and mix well. Adjust the water consistency.
  • Boil until the oil separates (about 4 minutes) and the kuzhambu reaches thick consistency.
  • Serve with rice.
