heat oil . shallow fry the brinjals till they become brown.
heat oil in a kadai.add mustard seeds , fenugreek, Channa Dal , red chilly and asfoetida and fry for a minute. add the sambar powder in the seasoning itself. pour the tamarind extract and salt and boil it in a simmer fire till the oil separates. add enough water and boil.after 15 minutes add the fried brinjals and jaggery and keep boiling for five to ten minutes.garnish with curry patha....
if sambar powder is not available,add red chilly powder 1 tbsp,and coriander powder 2 tbsp in the oil add roasted fenugreek powder 1/2tsp just before removing from fire.
usually in Tamil nadu people use more gingelly oil ,which gives a special flavour to this curry and good for health also.
