Brinjal & Potato Puli Kuzhmbu/ Curry


1 brinjal (cut into wedges)
1 large potato (cut into wedges)
1 tomato (cut into wedges)
1 large onion (sliced)
3 garlic cloves (chopped)
1 tomato (chopped)
1 sprig curry leaves
1 tsp of fenugreek seeds
1 green chilli (slit)
1 cup of tamarind juice (not thick nor watery)
2 tsp of red chilli powder
1/4 tsp of turmeric powder
2 tbsp of coriander powder
1 tsp of jaggery
2 tbsp of oil
Salt to taste
Water (as needed)

In a pan, heat oil and fry fenugreek seed, green chilli, onion, garlic, curry leaves fry for a minute then add tomato, cook until it turns mushy. Then add potato, pour water, turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder, let the mixture boil until potato is cooked, then add the brinjal (let it cook for few minutes).

To the boiling gravy add tamarind juice, salt and jaggery, all this mixture should come together and thicken (should not be watery if its watery let it simmer for a few more minutes), finally before turning off the flame add in the tomato wedges.
