Stuffed Brinjal Fry – Stuffed Brinjal Curry

March 28, 2017 Dry SabjiKootu / Poriyal Varieties  2 comments

Brinjal is my all time favourite! I can eat brinjal in any form. This Stuffed Brinjal Fry is a simple and flavourful curry to go with rice or roti. The freshly ground masala does the magic here. Usually the stuffing will be made with peanuts and sesame seeds. Since am not a big fan of that combo, have changed the flavours according to our taste buds. If u are like me, try this combo. Have given the usual masala powder option in the tips.

Beetroot Fry is a simple yet yummy stir fry which I make quite often. I am always in the look of some sabji to pair with roti and dal, which is our usual lunch menu during week days. This Beetroot Fry has a simple twist which makes it suitable for both roti as well as rice. Though am not a big fan of beetroot, Chotu and hubby love it. U can either grate the beetroot or chop it finely like I have done. I personally dont prefer the grating part, Lazy me!!
