Yennai Kathirikkai Kuzhambu N An Award

Yennai Kathirikkai Kuzhambu , this delicious brinjal in oily gravy dish is one my grandma's signature dish...she used to prepare this gravy with fresh brinjals which she have already picked from her garden, usually she make this gravy out with green brinjals which turn this kuzhambu more delicious...But this gravy need almost 1/4th cup of gingelly oil to prepare and this gravy stay really good for a week, if u have some leftover of this gravy which never happen coz this tangy delicious gravy will surely disappear after a day, this gravy goes awesome with hot steaming rice and fried papads, nothing will beat this combo...this tangy gravy goes to Grammathu Kaimannam, event by Shama of Easy2Cook Recipes..
