Vazhuthananga Urulakizhangu Curry/ Brinjal Potato curry
Vazhuthananga urulakizhangu curry or Brinjal Potato curry is a yummy side dish for rotis/chapathis or rice.This is my moms recipe, she learned it from one of her Telugu friends. I believe it was originally the stuffed brinjal recipe which she modified as a side dish for chapatis.It is lightly fried brinjal and potatoes in a spicy and tangy sauce,flavored with roasted coconut and sesame seeds.Try this you will surely love this.
Boiled baby potatoes-8-10

Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp

Slit baby brinjal into four keeping the stem intact. Rub a little of salt in between and shallow fry this in a little oil in medium heat till all sides are equally roasted. Keep this aside.
Boil potatoes and peel off the skin and cut into half.
Heat oil and saute onion, ginger garlic till golden brown. Add tomatoes and curry leaves and saute till tomatoes get cooked and mashed up. Add chilly powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala and fry for a minute. Add fried brinjal and potatoes and 3/4 cup of water.Simmer and cook till the sauce thickens.
