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. Brinjal podi curry INGREDIENTS: SERVES 3 – 4
