KATHIRIKKAI PODI CURRY | BRINJAL PODI CURRY RECIPE

Without much introduction to the recipe, let me explain how to make Brinjal curry with freshly ground spices. Generally it is made by stuffing the spice powder into the brinjal, but since we like it this way more than the Stuffed Brinjal curry, I made it in this way. This Kathrikkai podi curry was lying in my drafts for more than 2  months i wanted to post this today. I have few more simple recipes lying in my draft which i will post in the following weeks and will post new recipes soon.

METHOD:

  • Take out the top portion(paavadai) of the brinjal and cut the brinjals into slices.
  • Soak it in the water to avoid getting it black.
  • Roast all the ingredients under the table “Roast and Grind”into golden brown color.
  • Grind this into a fine powder.
