As mentioned earlier in one of my posts on this variety of Eggplant /Brinjal /Aubergine, Matti Gool is a seasonal variety of Eggplant grown in the Dakshin Kannada area of Karnataka in India. A variety of dishes are prepared during the season. You can substitute it with the Eggplant available in your local market. Posting a stir fry today which is simple but flavourful.
- 2 medium sized Eggplants
- 2 large onions sliced
- 3 Dry red chillies broken into bits
- 2 tbsps Coconut oil or oil of choice
- 1 tsp Mustard seeds
Wash and slice the Eggplant into bite sized pieces. Slice the onions and keep aside. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard and after it splutters add the onions and chilly bits. Roast till the onions turn translucent. Drop in the sliced Eggplant, salt and sprinkle a little water. Cover and cook till done.
