Brinjal and peas Sabji

Ever since the packing-lunch saga started all kinds of ideas keep coming especially on days i have nothing planned out(read already chopped vegetables) for the lunch!Peas make a good accompaniment to any vegetable so i have discovered now.

I miss making bhaingan ka bhartha, haven't come across the big brinjal too often here.So I thought of using the same choice of vegetables for this sabji, and makes a great side dish for our humble chapati!

Here's how i made it...

You need
Brinjals 3 nos chopped in wedges
Peas half a cup
Onion 1 medium sliced
Garlic 5 nos minced
Tamarind pulp 2 tablespoons
Sambar powder 1 tsp
Red chilli powder 1/2tsp
Dhaniya/coriander powder 1/2tsp
Cumin seeds 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 2 tablespoons

  • Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds and let it splutter, add the onions and let it fry until translucent.
  • Fry the garlic and then add the brinjals and fry till soft.
  • Add the tamarind pulp and let the brinjals cook in the pulp.
  • Add the masala powders and fry well.Add about 2 tablespoons of water(so the spices don't burn)
  • Add the peas in the end and saute all well.

  • Serve with steamed rice and rasam or chapatis.

  • You can add the big brinjals instead of the normal sized ones.We like the tangy taste in brinjals , if you do not like it you can skip it and add tomatoes instead.
