Brinjal Sabzi (eggplant sauteed vegetable) or Badanekayi Palya ( Gulla ) Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 09:43:00
Brinjal ( badanekayi ) is commonly known as eggplant in all the parts of India. It is available in different shapes like round or elongated, and its color also varies. You get it in green, purple and a different form of brinjal called matti gulla,which is available only in south kanara (around mangalore ). It has a slightly different taste. Brinjals can be cooked in various forms like grilling, baking, stir-fry, and so on. Since this vegetable contains lots of fiber and is low in carbohydrate, it is very helpful in controlling the blood sugar level. And also it has a very low glycemic index level.  It contains lots of vitamins, minerals and potassium. This recipe ( mangalore style )which I have mentioned below can be done from either round  shaped or elongated shaped brinjals.

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. Instead of the grounded Masala powder, you can also prepare this pallya only with the help of green chillies, that is, increase the quantity of green chillies and sprinkle coconut scrapings over it.
