White brinjal kura recipe, Vankaya kura

White brinjal kura is a spicy, tangy and dry dish prepared with white brinjal, tamarind pulp and roasted spices. This brinjal podi kura tastes great when served along with sambar and rice or just with hot rice topped with ghee. I wanted to try making a dish with white brinjal for quite some time but it never happened for some reason, 2 weeks back when I went to the store the regular brinjal was not available so got these instead and asked for a recipe from my mom and got 3 recipes and 1 among that is this simple Andhra style kura which was made in no time. The secret behind getting this recipe delish is roasting the spices well and then grinding it. You can try the same recipe with regular brinjal as well. So do try this recipe at home and let me know your feedback. So let’s get to the making!
