Quick n Easy Brinjal Gravy

I never cook vegetables (other than potato and raw banana) in pressure cooker. But have seen many of my friends use pressure cooker to make vegetable curries. Just tried it with brinjals, the gravy turned out to be delicious and definitely its a keeper. Whenever you are running out of time or not feeling like cooking an elaborate curry, you can try this!


Ingredients
Brinjals - 6
Onion-1
Few curry leaves and Cilantro
Toamto-2
Sugar - 1/2teaspoon
Salt
Oil
To grind
Grated Coconut-3tablespoons
Red chilly-7 (adjust to your taste)
Roasted peanuts - 2 teaspoons
Sesame seeds - 1teaspoon
Small piece of Tamarind

Method
Grind the things given under "to grind" to a nice paste with little water.
Chop the onions and tomatoes into fine pieces.
Wash and cut the brinjals ( Make slits on the veggie, take care not to split them)
Heat about a tablespoon of oil in a small pressure cooker.
Add the onions, curry leaves and saute till they become transparent, then add the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
Now add the brinjals, give a quick stir, add the masala paste with enough salt.
Add 1/2cup of water, sugar and close the pressure cooker. Let it cook just for one whistle.
 
Open the cooker, garnish with cilantro and gravy is ready to indulge! It goes well with plain rice/biriyani/pulao/roti...what not?! ;)
