One more vegetable added to my list of never-liked-before but I like it now veggies list.I've not been very fond of Brinjal based dishes mainly because of the texture the vegetable provides--soggy and slimy and many more such unprintable words!!I started getting interested in Brinjal only after I found out that it tastes very much similar to Gulla/Matti Gulla and I could use it for any preparation as a substitute for the same.Since this one is one of our favorites,Brinjals invariably make their way into our fridge.
I initially wanted to prepare the famous Ennai Kathrikai as I have heard so many rave reviews about it.But I did not want to be over enthusiastic.Now here I was with a vegetable I barely noticed before and the next instant I decide to cook one of the best-ever Brinjal preparations??I wanted to take the easier route and I did!!
Nags has many Brinjal recipes in her blog and it wasn't hard for me to choose a recipe.I chose the different yet delicious looking Brinjals in tomato ketchup.We had it with Rotis and surprisingly,finished off the whole bowl!! Thank you Nags,let me try your Ennai Kathrikai..someday!!
