Recipe Marathon # 2 - 25th day -Kathirikkai Paruppu kootu/ Brinjal Kootu

Recipe Marathon Day 25.......My favourite recipe for all........Iam a brijal lover i used to try lot of recipe with brinjal. This recipe is my favourite one which my mom used to prepare with milagu rasam or with parrupu thuvayal... here some information about Brinjal.
The Brinjal, the popular vegetable of the masses, is native to India. The most common variety the glossy purple Brinjal is a familiar component of Indian curries.This inexpensive vegetable was known as Malayan purple melon in China. There it was a common food item since 600 BC.May be the shape of first varieties that English speakers came across prompted them to call it as eggplant. The botanical name of Brinjal is Solanum melongena.The other names are begun in Bengali, ringna in Gujarathi, baingan in Hindi, badane in Kannada,waangum in Kashmiri, vazhuthinanga in Malayalam, vange in Marathi, baigan in Orriya, kathiri in Tamil,venkaya in Telugu and the other names are Aubergine and Eggplant. With Brinjal we used to do only sambar and poriyal ..why not try out kootu..
