This is a very rare recipe which I learnt from my grandmother. You will not get this in any restaurant. This goes very well with Dosas.
Brinjals – 10-12 small or 2 large
Green chillies – 4-5 finely chopped
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Urad dal – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – 1 tsp
Asafoetida – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Oil – 6 tbsp
Salt to taste
Rice flour – 1 tbsp
Finely chop the Brinjals and keep them aside in water.
In a kadai heat oil and add Mustard seeds, Urad dal, green chillies, asafoetida and curry leaves and saute till the mustard seeds splutter.
Now add the Brinjals after draining the water. Add turmeric powder and salt and mix it well. Now add 3-4 cups of water and bring it to a boil till the brinjals become soft.
Add the rice flour in 1/4 cup of water, mix it well and add the mix to the kadai. Once the gravy has thickened turn off the heat.
Yummy nezhukari is ready for tasting. Enjoy with Dosas!!!
