Tips

  1. The Curry tastes better if the Brinjals are tender.

  2. It is enough for sliced Brinjals to fry up to 60% in Oil. The rest will get cooked in the gravy. Only then will the Brinjal absorb the flavours well.

  3. I have used some Red Mirchi Powder in the Curry for colour. As such, Green Chilli spice tastes better than red Mirchi Powder in this Curry.

  4. This Curry tastes better if you use both Ghee and Oil. But you could use just Oil too.

  5. Brinjal Curries taste good only if there is adequate Oil.

  6. I had fried Onions ready, so I used them. You could fry the Onions and make the Curry in the same Oil.
