The important thing about ennai kathirikai kolambu is to fry the brinjal well (Until the outer part becomes a little soft) in the oil…Try adding tamarind and water after frying it…it will be more tasty!!

Hi Karthica..this is a very good recipe. I never knew anyone could make ennakathirikai like my mom did, but now am sure you do. I tried it out and it came out very well. My husband and friends liked it a lot.
