For seasoning

  1. Oil 1tsp
  2. Half tsp of mustered seeds
  3. Pinch of hing
  4. One red chilli


Cut pea brinjal into half and soak in the water for 30mins.

After 30min, drain out the water and transfer into hot pan with 1tsp of oil and fry till it becomes soft, here you can add pinch of salt also.

Once the brinjal becomes soft, that means the brinjal has perfectly done.

Take out the brinjal and in the same pan fry urad dal, green chillies, red chillies and coriander seeds.

Once they are done add all the ingredients in the blender along with tamrind, little bit of water and salt. Grind untill it’s become nice paste.

Transfer the chutney into bowl and now for tempering in a small tampering bowl add oil, once it’s heated add mustered seeds and when the mustard seeds begin to splutter add hing and red chilli.

Switch off the flame and pour the tempering on the pea brinjal chutney, mix it well.

Serve with hot rice.

Note : have to fry brinjal very well, or else chutney will become bitter in taste. Taste the brinjal, to check if it is done or not.
