How to Make Brinjal Curry with Garlic

  • Cut the brinjals and onion lengthwise and chop the tomatoes.
  • Peel the garlic, and if the flakes are big, cut them into two.
  • Boil the brinjals with garlic, salt, turmeric and sambar powder (you can replace sambar powder with red chilli powder). Brinjal gets cooked very quickly so take care not to overcook.
  • When the brinjals are done, drain and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan/kadai and temper with the ingredients mentioned.
  • Fry the onion until transparent, then add the tomatoes with required salt.
  • When the tomatoes turn mushy, add the boiled brinjal, mix well and cook over medium flame until the oil separates from the curry and the masala turns brown.
  • Do not turn frequently, just let it brown evenly.
  • Serve with rice.
