Plantain & Brinjal Curry

I learnt this recipe from a SriLankan friend. I have tried it several times and totally love it. Fresh grated coconut is the key ingredient and oil plays an important role too! So use these ingredients according to your comfort level and taste! :) Thanks Vanathy for the yummy recipe!


Small round Brinjals-3
Green chilly-1
Few curry leaves and cilantro
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1/2teaspoon
Coconut-1/4cup (or to taste! ;) )
Pepper corn-10
Chilly powder-11/2 teaspoons
Turmeric powder-1/4teaspoons
Oil - 2 tablespoons (or to taste! ;) )


Boil the plantains with little bit of turmeric and salt. Veggie should be soft but not mushy.Remove the skin and grate it after it cools down.
Cut the brinjals into thick slices.
Heat a tablespoon of oil, arrange the brinjal slices, close the lid and cook for few minutes. Then flip them over and cook on the other side too.
Combine the grated plantain, roasted brinjals with turmeric powder,chilly powder, coconut, salt. Mash and mix it with hand.

Heat another tablespoon of oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds followed by cumin seeds and let them splutter. Then add the onion-curry leaves- green chilly and sauté them till the onion becomes transparent.
Add the mashed veggie mixture and mix well. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 5 minutes(or till the raw smell of the spices are gone), stirring in between.

Crush the garlic and pepper corns, and add it with the curry.garnish with cilantro and put off the flame. Serve hot with any rice variety.
