How to make Chutta Kathirikkai Gothsu / Smoke Eggplant gravy?

Wash the brinjals and apply few drops of oil on them and spread well.
Hold the stem part of the brinjal and keep them on the stove flame.
Keep rotating so that evenly all the sides get cooked well.
Do so till the vegetable becomes dark brown almost to black.
I used the thin rod Which I have for making kuzhipaniyarams, frying pappads and vada.


Keep the smoked brinjals aside to get cooled down.
Remove the skin completely and cut the stem off.
Now smash well the brinjal.
 Heat a pan with oil and do the seasoning with mustard seeds, urad dal and chana dal.
Once they become brown and splutter well, add the green chillies, curry leaves and onions.
Fry till the onions start to change the colour.

 Then add then turmeric powder and the tomatoes.
Stir well and wait till the tomatoes get cooked well.
Add the asafoetida powder, sambhar powder  and salt.
Add the mashed brinjal and stir well.
Pour the tamarind juice.
Let them boil well till the stuff becomes thick.
Switch off th stove and garnish with curry leaves.
