Kathrikai (Brinjal) Bajji

I have seen so many events which had brinjal as the main component! but unfortunately I couldn't participate in those events! As I saw pooja's 'Vegetable of the week' I saw an opportunity to post our favorite kathrikai bajji!

I really dont know how this dish got this name.Its not like all deep fried bajjis.Its not at all in the bajji family itself!!!!!


Brinjal – ½ kg -chopped
Onion – 3 chopped
Tomato – ½ kg – chopped
Red chillies – 5 to 6
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Oil – 1 tbsp
Salt – as per the requirement

This is a very nice dish which I learnt from my MIL.

Heat oil in a cooker. Put onion ,red chillies ,brinjal and tomatoes. Add enough water to cook. Then pressure cook it. It should be cooked very well. Drain the excess water.Add salt.Then smash the brinjal thoroughly and serve hot with dosais.

This is my entry to the 'Vegetable of the week'
