Ennai Kathirikai Curry5

Ennai Kathirikaai Kuzhambu, This curry means a lot of meaning to me, regular readers may know i LOVE brinjals for no reason. I have so many curry varieties with brinjal in this page, this “Ennai Kathirikaai kuzhambu” is quite vey special and important to note, there is no onion, no garlic, and no tomatoes

Once my SIL said she was in search for no garlic indian gravy to pair with rice for a kitty party. I really had so many question how a curry with out garlic smells good, but when i made without garlic, onion and tomato this is a double booster for the thought.

Since this curry is loaded with so many fried dhal’s the aroma of the curry stays for a long. Richness and thickness of the gravy is from the fried dhal’s. I heard this recipe from my neighbour, who literally follows her family recipes.

The way she narrate the recipe makes me to try over this recipe, earlier I had a semi dry version of Ennai kathirikaai recipe with Onion, tomato and garlic, that was a yummy post and most liked one in our family to check the recipe click on the link.

This version of Ennai Kathirikaai kuzhambu is absolute tempting for a South Indian. Hope this Post helps you to learn this version of Ennai kathiriakkai Kuzhambu.
