Brinjal Stir Fry

Brinjal Stir Fry is a poriyal type dish which I learnt from my Mom. Its easy and perfect recipe for lunch time. 

Brinjal - Medium Sized Variety 1 {or} Small  Sized Variety 5 to 6
Green Chili 1, slit
Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Garam Masala 1 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 11/2 tbsp
Mustard seeds
Asafoetida 1 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Water if needed 
Grated Coconut 1 tbsp
Freshly Chopped Coriander Leaves few

Wash and Cut brinjals in cubes. Discard if any big sized seeds are there. Once the brinjals are cut, immediately keep the brinjals in water, as it will start changing color.

In pan heat Oil. Once heated, add mustard seeds. As it crackles, add asafoetida and curry leaves. Once it splutters, add green chili. 

Now add brinjal {discarding the water}, turmeric powder, salt and Mix and close with a lid and allow to cook for 6 to 7 minutes in low flame. In between open frequently, stir and close the lid again, so that it doesn't get burnt. If you feel the Brinjal is getting dry or stuck on the bottom of the pan, just add a spoon of water and mix and close the lid and cook until the brinjal is fully done - become soft. 

Now add red chili powder, garam masala and stir properly. Close the lid and again cook for 1 minute and then switch off the flame.

After 1 minute add grated coconut and mix.
