Sutta Kathrika Thogayal

 Hi
When viji has announced the SYS-W series for the month of march, I had picked up the colour purple  and had to cook a dish with an purple coloured ingredient and here is a typical south inidan chutney or thogayal using the big brinjal
INGREDIENT
Brinjal(Big variety)        1
Black gram dal              1tbsp
Mustard seeds              1/2 tsp
Asafoetida                    1/4 tsp
Red chillies                    3-2
Tamarind                      a small marble sized
Oil                               2tsp
Salt                              to taste
PREPARATION
Apply oil on the surface of the brinjal. Roast it directly on the flame till it is charred completely evenly on all sides.Let it cool. Remove the charred skin and keep it aside
Now heat the oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and when it starts to splutter add the black gram dhal, red chillies and asafoetida and roast it till the dhal starts to brown a little
Transfer this to a mixer. Add salt and tamarind to this and grind into s fine powder
Now add the roasted brinjal to this and grind it into a fine paste
Serve with hot rice ghee, appalam and kootu!!!
