Masala kathirikkai

Written by: 7aum Suvai

Masala kathirikkai is prepared by adding flavorful masala to the brinjal. I learned this recipe from my friend and I loved it so much. I have tried it few times and it came out very tasty every time. Now it became one of our favorite items. It goes well with white rice and sambar, also a good combo for curd rice.
