Brinjal & Cauliflower curry

brinjal and cauliflower curry

Brinjal/eggplant is a vegetable which can be cooked in combination with other vegetables in a variety of ways. This is one of my all time favourite vegetables and besides the stuffed varieties the combination with cauliflower with some seasoning ingredients tastes wonderful and is quick & easy currry to prepare.


  1. Long purple brinjals – 3
  2. Cauliflower – 1(medium)
  3. Tomato – 2
  4. Onion – 1(large)
  5. Green chillies – 2
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Oil – 2tsp
  8. Red chilli powder – 1/4tsp
  9. Coriander chopped – 2tsp

For  seasoning/tempering:

  1. Chana dal – 1tsp
  2. Urad dal – 1tsp
  3. Mustard seeds – 1/2tsp
  4. Hing – pinch
  5. Curry leaves – few


  • Chop brinjals,onion and tomatoes  into equal size pieces and slit the green chillies length wise.
  • Cut  and wash the cauliflower  florets too.  
  •  Heat  2 tsp of oil in a deep frying pan ,add the seasoning ingredients,after the mustard starts spluttering,add onions and fry till tranlucent.
  • To this add tomatoes,brinjals,cauliflower and green chillies in order.
  • Cover and cook by adding salt till all the vegetables are cooked and soft.
  • Finally add red chilli powder and garnish with coriander leaves at the end.
  • This curry goes well with plain rice or rotis(indian bread).
