Well there is no specific reason for my very long break to blogging. Probably i was waiting for nice snaps of my dishes to put it down in my blog and that never happened till now n even now;)

Let me scrap about one of the simple n tasty dish to make ..Vankaya & Tomato kura.

Ingredients :

Brinjal  – 6 (Round n white ones)

Tomatoes – 3(medium)

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 spoon

Onion – 1 (medium)

Green Chillies – 3

Oil – 3 spoons

First cut brinjal into small pieces and put it in salt water. Then chop onions, chillies and tomotoes too.

Take a kadai and add 3 spoons of oil to it. Add jeera, mustard seeds and curry leaves to it once they pop up. Add onions , green chillies and then ginger garlic paste to it. Fry it for 3-4 minutes on low flame till the raw smell of ginger garlic paste disappears. Add brinjal pieces in the pan and also put salt. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes on low flame with the closed lid. Add tomato pieces to it and let it cook on low flame. Then add chilli powder and cook till the water dries as per your choice.(if u want more gravy then add little water to it or else it cooks with tomato juice). Finally garnish with corriander leaves and the curry is ready 🙂
