Vazhuthananga/Brinjal Mezhukkupuratti

Vazhuthananga/Brinjal Mezhukkupuratti

Quick and easy side dish for rice. Mezhukkupuratti is a spicy stir fry with vegetables,onions and spices. It is a common side dish served with rice in Kerala. You can make mezhukkupuratti with any vegetable like plantain, yard beans, yam or any other of your choice. This vegetable dish is also served in Onam/ Vishu Sadhya.Here I have used eggplant/ Brinjal.

Eggplant- 2
(I used the Chinese long eggplant)
Pearl onions- 10-12
Garlic-1 pod
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder-1/2- 3/4 tsp
( adjust accordance to spice preference)
Pepper powder-a pinch
Curry leaves- 2 springs
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Coconut oil and salt to taste

Cut egg plant into one inch thick slice or into thin long slices.
Crush shallots, two curry leaves and garlic using a kitchen chopper or mortar and pestle.
Heat 2 tbs of coconut oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add curry leaves and the the crushed shallots and saute till the raw smell disappears and it turns golden brown.
 Add chilly powder,pepper powder, salt and saute for a minute. 
Add the sliced egg plant and mix well with spices. Roast and toss in medium flame for four to five minutes till eggplant is soft and cooked. Serve with rice.
