I’m always looking for new eggplant recipes and when I find a new recipe, I try to make as soon as I can 🙂 This muvva vankaya (muvva=pearl vankaya=eggplant) curry recipe is from a Telugu cooking show that I duly noted down in my recipe diary. Valli already made the same dish few months back.
We rarely get really small baby eggplants here, so it took me a while to get to this recipe. But luckily my mom found some beautiful baby eggplants at the Indian grocery a month back and I made this curry right away (so it has been sitting in the drafts for while :-)).
There is no stuffing or grinding involved in this dish and is quite easy to make. It is basically eggplants cooked in spicy onion-tomato gravy. It tastes good with rice and roti.
