An out and out Thanjavur recipe, learnt from my M-i-l... But she used to cook in a vessel, but according to the changing times and to fasten work, I have made it easier by making it a Pressure Cooker Recipe

So simple and yet so tasty.....

Less ingredients but max taste.....

Can be named a Koottu...

Can be named a Kuzhambu....

Must be made with Green brinjals only. 

Green brinjals - 4
Green chillies - 3 , slit
Curry leaves - a few
Rice flour - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

To season
Cooking oil - 3 tbsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Lunch/main dish/side dish
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 10 mts

Serves 2-3

Brinjals washed and drained in a colander and chopped into small cubes

Rice flour mixed with some water and kept ready

Pressure pan heated, hing and turmeric powders, mustard seeds and slit green chillies seasoned

Then the cubed brinjals along with curry leaves added and sauteed.

Salt to taste added

Water poured to immersing level

Rice flour water added

and mixed well, cooked for 2 whistles

Let the pressure release naturally, then after opening, looks like this

Serve this simple and yummy dish with any South Indian menu..we can mix rice with it and eat, or to rasam saadham, we can eat it as a side...however you eat it, it is amazingly yummy!!!
