Brinjal Curry with Peanut Sauce (Kathrikai Kadala Curry)

I dont even remember how I started liking brinjals, its only a year since I've started liking this veggie. This curry with the flavour of peanuts and sesame tastes soo good and goes well with rice and rotis. Do give a try for yourself!

My Notes:
  • I saw this recipe once in a cookery show and sesame was mentioned optional but I added it as I luv the flavour.
  • You can also add jeera and curry leaves while tempering but I didnt add it though.
  • You can also make it a bit more gravy kind and serve it as a sidedish for rotis.

  24. i'm allergic to brinjal and my family doesn't like it very much. However, I try to make it at least 2-3 times a month so we can get a change from the usual potato, carrot, beans, gobi etc. I'm going to make this over the weekend. I love the combination of peanut and sesame seeds so will try this. Thanks for sharing!

    P.S. I got my ramekins from Chennai. Finally!! Thank you so very, very much!

  33. This tasted wonderful; just being nit-picky... I would add a note asking folks to dry roast the peanuts separately. Since they are bigger, when you roast it with the rest of the daals, there is uneven roasting. Also, there is no mention of the timing of the sambar powder in your process.

    Nevertheless, great-tasting recipe! Thanks!
