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.

  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!

  34. This recipe is lovely! Brinjal is my favorite this way! Thanks for all these delicious recipes! I always have a link to your site on my blog! Can't get enough!
