Tamilnadu Style Brinjal Kothimeera Curry | Brinjal Curry | Vankaya Curry

Tender Brinjals with Coriander paste is a special dish made by Telugu people .

Ingredients and the method of making differ depending on the region. This recipe is made by Telugu people settled in Tamil Nadu. I had this curry when I visited a Telugu family settled in Coimbatore. I liked it very much.

This is similar to the Brinjal curry we make but make small changes in the making. Brinjal lovers will like this curry very much because of its special, refreshing Coriander taste. Bengal Gram, Fennel and Coconut are used in this curry which are not used in the curry made by Telugus.
