Make Brinjal Bhaji(Egg Plant Curry) in an easy way.

Updated on May 8, 2014

Brinjal alias Baingan alias aubergine alias egg plant.

I was (and am still) not a fan of Brinjal (aubergines). This is one of my all time favorite side dishes. I like eating this especially with hot chapatis. I somehow do not like it with rice. But my husband loves it with rice and chapatis. This may not be an overly popular dish due to the fact that it is invariably oily because of the nature of aubergines which act like sponges. But i do love it when it's done really well. I always cook with minimal oil.

But the benefits of eating brinjal are many. One of my cousins used to sweat a her feet and palms a lot. She sweated profusely that she even found it difficult to walk in her sandals, since they slipped due to the sweat. Once I took her to a shoe shop and while trying a new sandals, the salesperson noticed her condition and told us that his sister too had a similar problem but someone suggested her to eat lot of brinjals and since then his sister found great relief to this profuse sweating. My cousin also started eating brinjals and we were surprised by the result. Ever since that incident, I also started eating brinjal curry and I started recommending brinjals to others.

      I went about making the bhajis according to your receipe. The end product was

      delicious. However the presention wasn't so. While frying the bhajis, the batter started to come off. I don't know the reason for it. ..was it because of the turmeric or whether it had do do with too little Soda B. Would you know the reason so that it doesn't the next time around ? Thanks.
