Brinjal Dal

We call it as Kathrikkai Pappu. I have a Green memory of this dish..as this is the one which I cooked for my Father very first time. This is a simple one...with less ingredinets. my husband hesitate to have brinjal's in any form. But this one is an exception for him. and he calls it as my siganture dish.(Well..when you try this, you will come to know..)

Recipe:
1.Brinjals-2(chopped into fine pieces)
2.Green Chilli's-2
3.Tuvar Dal-1 cup(Boiled and mashed well)
4.Turmeric Powder-1/4 spoon
5.Asafoetida powder-few sprinkles
6.Corriander Leaves to Garnish
7.Mustard-1/2 spoon

Method:
Boil the finely chopped brinjal pieces in adequate water. allow them to be cooked well. Now in a Kadai..heat 2 spoons of oil, add mustard..when it crackles add Slitted Green Chilli's. fry them. add asafoetida powder before adding chilli. Now add the cooked Brinjals and Dal. mix well. add turmeric powder and Salt and little water as per the consistency you require. let it boil and garnish it with corriander leaves and serve with Hot Rice along with Rasam. Brinjal Dal along with Carrot Thuvaiyal and Rice.
This Dal goes well with Chapathi's.
