BRINJAL PICKLE

Another one of my amma’s recipes that she learnt when she was in college! I remember amma always telling me that the brinjal pickle she learnt to make in college was tasty. Somehow I never got around to making it.

Today was a quiet day, with not much of work to do around the house. Was going through the fridge and realised that there was some brinjal that needed to be used. Couldn’t think of a better dish to make than try out the pickle. Goes well as a bread filling too, apart from an accompaniment with rice and dal!

This is what you’ll need

Brinjal: 500gms

Red chillies: 60gms
