Most of the dishes that I cook are simple and quick to make. If they are not, then I find ways to minimize the time involved in the process. So, when Srivalli announced Blogging Marathon #5, signing up to do it under the theme Curry in a hurry (under 30 minutes) seemed to be the logical thing to do. I would have preferred taking up a challenge - like making sweets for a week, but then, there are no takers for sweets in my home.
So, in keeping with the theme, I am posting a really simple stir fry that goes well with rice.
What you need:
Brinjals - I used 8 of the long, green variety
Sambar powder - 2 tsp (Can be substituted with red chilli powder if you want it spicier)
Oil - 1.5 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Cut brinjals into long, medium sized pieces. Heat oil in a pan Add the brinjals and salt to it, reduce flame to low, cover and cook until the brinjals are 3/4th cooked. Now add sambar powder and mix well. Remove the lid and cook till brinjals are done.
