Kathirikkai Poriyal | Brinjal Poriyal
Brinjal or Eggplant is known as Kathirikkai in tamil, Vankaya in telugu and baingan in hindi. Brinjal is a low calorie vegetable rich in fibres, vitamins, manganese, iron, copper, potassium and anthocyanins. Choose eggplants that are firm, bright coloured and heavy. Avoid brinjals with cuts, wrinkles and bruises. My favourite brinjal recipes are Vangi bath, kathirikkai chutney and ennai kathirikkai kuzhambu.
