Poondu kathirikai poriyal (Garlic Brinjal Fry)

Poondu kathirikai poriyal is a favorite in my house hold. Even my husband who dose not like brinjal like it when i make this poriyal. Growing up I used to pick out garlic from all the food, so to make me eat garlic my mom sliced the garlic very thin and add it along with the brinjal.
  • 2 Cups Brinjal (Sliced thin)
  • 1 Large onion (sliced thin)
  • 2 Bulbs Garlic (sliced thin)
  • 1 Sprig Curry leaves
  • 1 Tbsp Chilly powder
  • 1 Tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 Tsp urad dal
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • Salt to taste.
Heat oil in a kadai, add Mustard seeds and urad dal.
When the mustard seeds pop add curry leaves, chopped onion and saute.
Now add brinjal, garlic and saute.
When the brinjal is coated in oil add salt and chilly powder and saute well.
Cover and cook, stir once in a while to avoid the brinjals sticking to the bottom of the pan.
Serve hot with rice.
