Brinjal fry (Kathirikkai Poriyal)

An easy to make yummy side dish for Rice Varieties. There are many ways to make the dish, yet I like this simple way of making using Sambar powder. I always want this poriyal without changing the shape of the long cuts, so I used to be extra careful while preparing this. At the same time I don’t want to use more oil also. The finished product is a silky smooth eggplant which tickles your taste bud and makes very satisfying meal all together. This brinjal fry is relishing with steam cooked rice and chilled yogurt.
