Brinjal/Egg Plant Fry(Ennai Kathrikaai)

Brinjal/eggplant fry is a simple and quick spicy recipe popular in Tamil nadu and other parts of south India. Brinjal/eggplant cut into small pieces or into lengthwise and shallow fried with basic Indian spices, onion and tomato. You can find this dish served as a vegetable with South Indian meals in Restaurants and Hotels serving south Indian food. Brinjal/eggplant fry goes well with rice and roti. I prefer to have this by mixing with white rice. Try this eggplant recipe, feel the mouth watering taste and Enjoy Cooking!!!
