Brinjal chutney recipe, Brinjal gojju chutney

Brinjal gojju chutney/ Brinjal chutney is a spicy, flavorful and little tangy side dish usually served along with Idli, dosa or hot rice. This brinjal chutney can be made very quickly as it calls for some simple ingredients in its making yet resulting in delicious chutney. I have used purple brinjal for this recipe as it tastes great with that, so do not try making this chutney with green or white brinjal. Also you can add or reduce the number of chillies depending upon the spice level preferred by you. The dry red chilli that I used was extremely spicy so used very less quantity. The more number you use it tastes great and also gives nice color, make sure to serve it with sesame oil. This recipe is usually prepared by my MIL for ven pongal and we used to relish it more than the pongalπŸ˜‚ Thought to share it with you all as I have been postponing this recipe for quite sometime. Even brinjal haters will surely fall in love with this recipe so do give it a try. Talking about brinjal do you like brinjals? If yes check out these recipes with brinjal from the blog.
