Gulla Huli / Brinjal (eggplant) Sambar Type - 1 Udupi Style Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 14:37:00
The simplicity of this curry is unbelievable. This gulla huli ( brinjal sambar ) is an authentic udupi curry, blended with a mixture of sweetness, spiciness and tangy flavor. It is a good alternative to any other brinjal curries. Here, in this curry, unlike other south Indian curries, I have not used any coconut paste but instead, I have used lots of chillis, jaggery and tamarind paste. The aroma of the curry is enhanced due to the coriander leaves as it is abundant in this curry. Here, I used brinjals which grows only at a place called mattu near udupi in karnataka ( India ),so it is called matti gulla.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. Note that, this gravy is a very spicy one, so adequate number of green chills are a must. But, if you cannot withstand it, decrease the number as per your preference.
  2. You can prepare this curry with other varieties of brinjals too, but see to it that the long variety of brinjal is not used.
  3. The taste of asafoetida should be slightly dominating in this curry.
  4. You need to use coconut oil for an authentic taste, but feel free to replace it with any other variety of oil if you so desire.
