There are a number of ways in which we cook food – boiling, steaming, frying etc. In this recipe we directly fry the brinjal on gas. If we have wood fire the taste will be still enhanced. This is a simple yet lip smacking recipe if you like fire roasted veggies.


1. Take one big brinjal and roast it directly on flame. keep turning it so that it is cooked evenly from all the sides.

2. Cool it and remove outer skin which will be charred.

3. Now have a look at inner content for any spoilt spots or worms. once done mash it well with hands.

4. Now take a small lemon sized tamarind and prepare its extract by adding water.

5. To mashed brinjal add about 5 tsp grated coconut, 4-5 crushed green chilly (depending on spice level). if you have birds eye chilly use them.

6. Add salt to taste, tamarind extract and mixed everything well with hands.

7. Finally add 2 tsp of coconut oil and mix.

8. This goes well with pej/ಗಂಜಿ or dali toy.
