How To Prepare  Vankaya Pachi Batani Kura:

  • Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds.  Once they start to splutter, add the channa dal and let it fry until it turns light brown.
  • Add onions and saute till they turn translucent.  Then add tomatoes and cook until the tomatoes turn soft.  Add the brinjals and mix well, close with a lid and let them cook on medium flame for about 3-4 mins.
  • Next add in the green peas, ginger paste, turmeric, coriander powder, chilli powder and salt and mix everything well, close with a lid and let them cook on low flame for about 5-6 mins.
  • Keep stirring in between so that the veggies do not stick to the bottom of the kadai.
  • Adjust salt if required and check if the veggies are cooked and remove from fire.
  • Brinjal and peas curry is ready to serve.  Enjoy it with steamed rice or rotis.
