It's Fabulous Friday, and I have a fabulous recipe for you!!

Continuing with my "North Karnataka Jolada Rotti Oota" series, today I am sharing the recipe for the spicy baby eggplant curry - Yennegai or Ennegai Badnekayo or Bharli Vangi. Many names, one dish!

"North Karnataka Jolada Rotti Oota" refers to the "thali" or plate meal presented in the photo above. It is a popular meal in the northern regions of the state of Karnataka. The Jowar Roti or Jolada Rotti, that I shared on Tuesday, is the star of the meal. These gluten free, vegan and oil free flatbreads are made from jowar or sorghum millet and if made well, totally melt in your mouth. The bland rotti is always served with spicy sides like this Yennegai.

Yennegai is a curry that is made by stuffing eggplants with a spicy peanut mixture and slow cooking them until done in the peanut masala.

If you are lucky, you will find these baby eggplants or brinjals and you can stuff them directly. While using brinjals, always check for worms and discard those that have them. If you can't find baby eggplants, you can make the recipe by just dicing a big eggplant into bite sized chunks. In that case, you can skip the step of stuffing the eggplants with the spicy peanut mixture.

It tastes fabulous with wholewheat rotis or naans too. If you want to eat it with rice, you can make a thinner gravy.
