Brinjals and Peanut sabji

I know this sounds a little offbeat of a combination.But I thought I'd give it a try and google-d to find many such recipes.This one is from Priya's blog, but I did tweak it to my tastes.

You need
Brinjals (sliced thinly) 3 nos
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 1 medium thinly sliced
Ginger- 1/2 tsp minced
Garlic 4 numbers minced
Turmeric powder a pinch
Red chilli powder 1/2 tsp(as much as you require)
Coriander/Dhaniya powder 1/4 tsp
Tamarind water - 1 tablespoon(thick)
Peanuts handful of them roasted and ground coursely
Oil 2 tablespoons
Salt to taste
Curry leaves,Coriander leaves/Cilantro - to garnish

- In a saucepan, heat the oil, add the mustard seeds,cumin, onions,curry leaves and let it fry.
- Add the garlic and let it fry well.Once thats done, its time to add the brinjal slices in.Let it fry until nice and brown.
- Add the powders: tumeric, dhaniya, chilli powders and salt.Let it fry well until the oil leaves the sides.
- Add the tamarind water and let it cook well.The brinjals have to nicely soak up the tangy taste.
- Add the peanut powder and give it a good stir.

- A nice hot and tangy curry for your chapatis or steamed curry rice.
