Brinjal (Eggplant) Curry

I seldom do Brinjal curry as rest of the family not found of it. I do rice or gravy for chapatti which all of us like. Today being long day in school kids normally have lunch at school and the lunch is just for me. So decided to do the brinjal curry. It is simple and easy recipe. If you use fresh brinjal it is tasty also

Sambar powder – 1 tablespoon
Turmeric powder – a pinch

Ginger – garlic paste – 1 teaspoon
Oil – one tablespoon

Cut the brinjals into medium size pieces and put it in water.

Add brinjal pieces and sprinkle little water. 
Add Sambar powder and turmeric powder. Mix it well.
