Kathirikai Curry
Kathirikai Curry recipe is the popular dish of Tamilnadu. Manu people hate brinjal without knowing the taste of the vegetable. If we prepare any recipe with Kathirikai in exact combination will give a delicious dish. Even I have Kathirikai in my childhood, but the taste was known by me very soon and I am preparing many verities of food recipes with Brinjal. Today I am going to share the preparation method of Kathirikai Curry also called Kathirikai poriyal by Tamil people. We usually have one curry and onion curd as side dish with Biryani, I suggest you try this kathirikai curry for biryani as side dish. The recipe preparation is some what similar to the making of ennai Kathirikai Curry.

How to Prepare Kathirikai Curry Recipe
Kathirikai Curry Recipe is called Kathirikai podi Curry in Tamil nadu villages. It is very tasty and best side dish for rice, dosa, and chapati.
Fry ginger, garlic, cinnamon, clove, coconut and groundnuts without adding oil (dry fry)
Grind the above dry fried Kathirikai Curry Recipe ingredients nicely by adding required water. Add required salt and mix well.
Wash and semi cut the brinjals (not cutting the bottom stem portion). I think you are familiar with this cut as you have prepared ennai kathirikai kulambu already.
Now stuff the ground masala in each brinjal and keep it for half an hour to the masala spreads the whole brinjal.
Take a pressure pan, add oil and sauté the mustard, followed by curry leaves and coriander leaves.
Then add the chopped onion, chillies and tomatoes. Fry the ingredients in medium flame until it becomes golden brown colour.
