Eggplant and Channa Curry

Actually i prepared this eggplant and channa curry coz both eggplants and pressure cooked channas were sitting my fridge and i want to turn them as something as gravy or else as simple curry to enjoy along with rice or with rotis, finally my small brain went for this delicious, quick, simple and easy curry, this curry tastes fabulous as side dish for rotis as well as a prefect side dish along with curd rice or simple sambar rice..I loved this combination very much and happily finished those leftovers as a droolworthy curry..Sending this curry to CWF-LB-Chickpeas guest hosted by Nithu, event by Kiran
