Brinjal Curry with Curd & Garlic Podi

Yesterday for dinner I prepared this Brinjal Curry with Curd and garlic Podi which is simple and tastes delicious. I prepared this curry by using brinjals, curd and garlic. We can also add tomatoes to this curry. This curry is very diet friendly and very easy to make, quick recipe for lunchboxes.

I added garlic podi which is prepared by red chillies, coriander seeds, jeera and garlic.  I learnt this recipe from my friend Tulasi. This goes well with rice, chapati and roti’s.


Brinjal chop into small pieces– 3 no
Onion chopped – 1 small
Oil – 2 tsps
Curd – ½ cup
Red chilli powder as required
Salt as required
Turmeric powder a pinch
Curry leaves – 4 -5 no

Garlic Podi
Coriander seeds – 1 tsp
Jeera – 1 tsp
Red chillies – 3 no
Garlic – 3 pods

  • In a blender take red chillies, garlic, coriander seeds, jeera and grind them to a smooth powder.
  • Wash brinjals and chop them into small pieces, chop onion also.
  • In a vessel add oil and add curry leaves.
  • Add chopped onions and cook till the onions turn soft.
  • Now Add brinjal pieces, turmeric powder and salt and mix well.
  • Cook for 5 mins, now add grinded podi and mix well.
  • Now sprinkle little water and place a lid and cook for another 10minutes.
  • Remove the lid and cook till the brinjal piece turns soft.
  • If required add red chilli powder. After the brinjal is completely cooked remove curry from heat.
  • Later after two minutes take curry in a bowl and add curd and mix well.
  • Serve hot with rice or roti’s.
