Allam Vankayi / Eggplant with ginger / Adraki Baigan / Brinjal with ginger

Allam Vankayi / Eggplant with ginger / Adraki Baigan / Brinjal with ginger

Another easy recipe for cold winter nights. This dish has lot of ginger in it, which feels good when you are down with a cold or a cough. This dish goes well with chapathi, roti or rice. You can make this dish with any firm eggplants. I made it with the small ones.


1/2 lb eggplant chopped lengthwise (juliened)
1 medium onion chopped lengthwise (juliened)
2 tbsp grated ginger
1 sprig of curry leaves
1-2 tsp ground green chilli paste (3-4 chillies)
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste
garnish with coriander leaves


Heat oil in a pan. Add the onions and curry leaves and saute them till they are translucent. Add the chilli paste and saute that too. Now add the eggplant and saute. Add salt and grated ginger. Now add the chilli powder and turmeric powder. Cook until the eggplant is cooked properly but not mushy. Garnish with coriander leaves. Enjoy!!!
