KATHIRIKAI GOTHSU |BRINJAL GOTHSU RECIPE| SUTTA KATHRIKKAI GOTHSU


Gothsu is a South Indian recipe, used as a side dish for Idli | dosa | upma| pongal. I have already posted a Onion Gothsu long back which my mom makes very often. But this recipe for kathrikkai gothsu | brinjal gothsu i learnt from my relative who visited our house last month. Though i prepared it long back somehow, didn’t post it.  Finally today i am sharing the recipe of Kathrikkai gothsu which she told , they also call it as Chidambaram Gothsu.

METHOD:
  • Roast the brinjal on open flame by applying oil on it. Pierce the brinjal with forkso that it will get cooked inside too.
  • Roast it in a low flame. When done, immerse the brinjal in water.After 5 minutes, take it out and peel the skin of the brinjal.

  • After peeling the skin, take a bowl of water and rinse the brinjal again to avoid too much of smoke smell coming out from it.
  • Mash the brinjal here and there to ensure that there is not insects in it.
  • If you want you can pulse in a mixer else you can mash it with hands. I put mine in  a mixer to get a smooth texture.
