Kathirikkai Masal/Eggplant Curry with Tandoori Roti and take part in Earth Hour

Kathirikkai Masal/Eggplant Curry with Tandoori Roti and take part in Earth Hour



I
tried Kathirikkai Masal from Solai True Chettinad Kitchen. At last started to trying things from my long list of bookmarked recipes....whenever I wish to try any of the recipes I endup lacking in a thing or two....and it was same this time too as I didn't had sambar powder but not letting that to stop me from trying I used redchilli and coriander powders and Kitchen King. For the original recipe check Solai's space, Thanks Solai for the wonderful recipe :)




Here is the recipe again with the changes:

Ingredients:

Eggplant (small) - 15-18 (appr. 300) -
Onion - 1 Large (Sliced)
Tomato - 1 Large (diced)
Garlic - 8-10 pods (sliced)
Redchilli powder - 1 1/2 tps
Coriander powder - 1 tps
Kitchen King powder - 1 tps
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tps
Fennel Seeds - 10 seeds
Curry leaves - 10-12 leaves
Coriander leaves - handful (chopped)
Oil - 2 tbs
Salt - to taste
Water - 1/2 - 1 cup

Method:

1. In a pan heat oil, add cumin, fennel seeds and curry leaves let it splutters
2. Add garlic and fry for 1 min. Add sliced onion and fry until it turns light brown.
3. Throw in the chopped tomato and cook for 2mins, now add eggplant (cut each eggplant in 4 slices) and fry them for 3-4 mins.
4. Add all the powder masalas mix well and cook for 3-4 mins again.
5. Add salt and 1/2 cup water, cook with lid on until eggplant becomes tender. Throw in half of the chopped coriander and cook for 5 mins.
6. Garnish with remaining coriander leaves.
