BRINJAL CURRY | KATHRIKKAI CURRY| EGGPLANT STIR FRY RECIPE

  Eggplant | brinjal| kathrikkai whatever you call is one of my favorite veggie and especially this curry which my mom makes with the big eggplant which we use for Baingan bharta is my most favorite one. I still remember wheni was pregnant with my second kid, i used to ask my mom to make this alteast 3-4 times a week. This will taste awesome when we mix with hot rice and eat with papad(my mouthwaters!!)
