I am going to share recipe of famous Andhra brinjal curry in raw mango gravy. It is simple to make and goes well with plain rice/roti/parathas/stuffed parathas.
250 gms Brinjal (Small ones, any kind)
1/2 cup grated kairi (raw mango)
2 medium sized onions finely chopped
2 green chillies finely chopped
1 tsp coarsely ground garlic
Pinch of sugar [Optional - If the kairi is too tangy]
Pinch of turmeric
2 tsp vegetable oil
Chop each brinjal into 4 pieces length wise.
Heat oil in a kadhai. Add onions and green chillies and simmer the flame. Cook till onions turn transparent. Remember not to fry them.
Add brinjal, sprinkle turmeric, salt and chilli powder. Mix well, simmer the flame and cover the lid. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add raw mango and garlic. Mix well and cover the lid. Cook for 5-8 minutes, till brinjal becomes soft.
Little sweet, little tangy baingan (brinjal) curry is ready to serve. The sweetness is because of onions, it brings balance to the gravy.
