Brinjal Pulusu

I am a huge fan of Andhra dishes. Most of the Andhra dishes have very unique flavor. This is a very tasty dish. I am not sure if this is exactly how you prepare this dish traditionally. But it turned out well and this is a new favorite at our Malayalee home J

 My sister who usually doesn’t like eggplant based dishes tried this and told me she’s in love with this dish and whenever we make eggplants at home we should make it this way. I was very happy to hear that as this is the first time I made this pulusu and my sister who can be a picky eater especially when it comes to veggie dishes said she loved this dish.
