A fragrant curry is always refreshing. It should have the right balance of flavours to hit the right taste buds. A freshly ground masala then takes the curry to the next level. Of course any curry with Oriental flavours like this Thai red curry with homemade red curry paste is surely a winner.

A very popular gravy from North Karnataka, badanekayi rasapalya. It is spicy yet refreshing and tastes best with bhakkri/jolada roti or even regular chapathis or rotis.
Badanekayi rasapalya or brinjal gravy has simple spices like sesame and cinnamon. Their combination makes this gravy loaded with flavours. Tomato and onion makes the base of the gravy nice and thick. Texture-wise this gravy scores a ten on ten in my opinion. ... “Badanekayi Rasapalya | Brinjal Gravy | Gravy Recipes”

Crispy but soft, pan fried brinjal/aubergine coins for tea-time

Something to munch on during tea-time especially on a rainy lazy Sunday evening surely sounds like fun. Snacks with tea/coffee need not always be deep fried or dunked in a lot of oil and then fried. Snacks can be subtly made and they taste really good without the guilt of a lot of calories. Eggplant or big brinjal/aubergine is not an appreciated vegetable but if it is converted to a tasty, crispy, savoury snack it can be very delightful. I call these Brinjal Coins because they look like big gold coins with the beautiful golden yellow colour rendered by the addition of turmeric/haldi. This is one of the many simple snacks I have learnt from my mother. Enjoy these with your hot beverage or serve as a starter! Try other snacks/starters. ... “Brinjal Coins”
Easy aloo baingan sabzi, mustardy, mildly spicy and flavourful
9/07/2016 9:46:12 PM vindhyadesai
A simple dry sabzi for everyday. Even those who do not like baingan/brinjal will also like this sabzi because the flavours are simple and tasty. Pungent mustardy flavour is imparted by adding pounded mustard seeds to oil before adding any other masala powders giving it the Bengal touch. You can even use mustard oil in place of pounded mustard seeds but the mustard flecks in between makes the sabzi very appealing. I have used regular garam masala, you can also use Punjabi garam masala if you want. Modify sabzi as per your taste. Do not overcook baingan which makes it mushy, unpalatable and unsightly sometimes. This sabzi is fast, fresh and simple and is an excellent side dish for rotis/phulkas/plain parathas/chapathis. Potatoes just work with eveything, they are so versatile! ... “Aloo Baingan | How to make aloo baingan sabzi?”
