My theme for the 3rd week of blogging marathon# 40 is ‘Unused posts from BM# 39‘. I think I speak for the whole group when I say that we were so enthusiastic in trying new dishes from the Indian States that we cooked more than we can post for last month. So Valli gave us a chance to post them this month.
As I was looking for Chettinad recipes to make for Tamil Nadu I found this Chettinad Eggplant Curry from Gayathri’s space. As you all know, I see eggplant I make eggplant and that’s what I made. I made the curry right away, but I wasn’t too happy with the clicks, so I made Chettinad Vegetable Biryani later. These are the original clicks since I didn’t get a chance to redo the dish, will definitely try to update the pics some time soon.
This is a very flavorful and spicy dish with the addition of spices typically found in Chettinad cuisine. I ate this curry with just about everything — rice, roti and even bread. The curry tastes even better the next day when the flavors get a chance to mingle.
