  1. I used white Brinjals, you can use either violet, long or thorny Brinjals

  2. Slit Brinjal into four divisions keeping the stem intact, so that its shape remains intact even after cooking.

  3. Drop the cut Brinjals in Salt water as soon as you cut them so that they will not turn black.

Drum stick:

1.We generally don't use drumsticks but we use 4-5 pieces of it. You can skip if you don't like it

  1. Do not peel off the fiber from it completely as it will turn pulpy after cooking. So remove only half of its fiber

  2. The tender the Drumstick, the faster it cooks.


1.You can use Potatoes along with the skin if you like, but I removed it

  1. A little more Salt,Tamarind and Chilli powder are required if the Potatoes are old ones

Tamarind juice:

1.Paste extracted from a Gooseberry sized ball of Tamarind, soaked in water, is enough for this dish

For Thicker gravy:

1.Remove the curry when it is of semi liquid consistency as it tends to become hard after cooling because of the Potatoes. You can add hot water to make it loose, if it becomes very hard before serving.
