Vankaya Vepudu/Brinjal Stir Fry

imageVankaya vepudu

This is super simple recipe with minimal ingredients. Already I’ve posted brinjal fry recipe with small variation. In my earlier brinjal fry I’ve prepared the fry using onion, coriander powder and besan flower. Also I’ve used small purple brinjals. In today’s recipe I’ve used long green brinjals. Garlic flakes, cumin powder and besan flour are added to enhance the flavour. Here I present tasty Vankaya vepudu  to relish as an accompaniment to hot steamed rice with a dollop of ghee. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
