    Brinjal Corn Peas Masala:
    Since childhood I have seen my mom cooking brinjal curry with peas..that thought only gave me an idea of cooking brinjal with corn..This came out very delicious and been in the top list for a part menu..:)

    [​IMG]
    What you need:
    Brinjal 500gms
    Sweet corn kernels cooked - 1 handful
    Onions-2 sliced
    Green Peas- 3 tbsp
    Coriander/Dhania Powder -2tbsp
    Red chilli Powder - 3 tbsp
    Turmeric - a pinch
    Salt to taste
    Oil -4 tbsp
    Cilantro for garnishing
    For seasoning:
    Cumin - 1tbsp
    Dried red chilli - 2
    Curry leaves - 1 spring
    Mustard seeds - 1tbsp
    Split uradh dal - 1tbsp

    How I made:
    • Take a pan and add oil.Add all the ingredients mentioned under seasoning and fry for a minute.
    • Now add onions and fry till transparent.
    • Add brinjal pieces along with salt and fry for 5 minutes on high flame.Simmer and cook for10 more minutes by closing the lid.
    • Add in turmeric,dhania and chilli powders and mix well.Cook for 5 more minutes with closed lid.
    • Add in the corn shells and green peas and sauté well.
    • Cook the curry until the brinjal pieces become soft and nice aroma evolves.
    • Garnish with fresh cilantro.Enjoy it with rice or chapathi.
    I haven't used ginger garlic paste as I needed a very less spicy curry.But please free to add it if you want before frying the onion slices...

    Hope you all like it and let me know your feedback :)
