Chutney Recipe: Brinjal chutney
HOW TO PREPARE : - Wash the brinjal and pat dry. Cut in into 1 inch long cubes. Slit the green chillies in the centre but they should still be joint and set it aside. Take the tamarind and remove the seeds and any other solid parts. You must have only the pulp. Take a pan and pour one tablespoon oil and bring to heat. Add the green chillies and the brinjal. Cook on a low flame till the oil begins to leave the edges of the pan. This may take a while and so saute at regular intervals. After 15 minutes it should be done. Turn of the flame and let it cool. Once its cool put it in a blender along with the tamarind and make a fine paste. Don't add any water. Now take a small frying pan and pour in the remaining oil. When the oil is nice and hot add the mustard. Let it crackle. Then add the urad dal and break the red chilly in half, add that too. Saute till the urad dal turns golden brown and turn of the flame. Add salt to taste and the seasoning at the same time. Mix it up and serve with some variety rice.
