Brinjal Thokku

Brinjal Thokku,one of the recipe shared by CFG Biryani Cookout....The thokku had a unique flavor with spices with mild tangy taste...I think it can be stored for a week if it doesnt gets over soon :)... 

Brinjal Thokku
Brinjal-1 kg
Tomato-700 gms
Sesame Oil-250 ml
Tamarind paste-150 gms
Green Chilly-5 nos,slited
Pepper-10 gms
Roasted Peanut-100gms
Mustard -10 gms
White sesame seeds-50 gms
Chilli powder-2 tbsps
Salt-2 tbsps

1.Remove the stem of the brinjals and slit them into four
2.Heat the kadai,pour the oil,add mustard seeds,cumin,pepper,curry leaves and the brinjals and fry in medium flame
3.In another kadai,dry roast the sesame seeds and peanuts . Cool it and grind into fine powder
4.Add the powder to brinjal mix and let it cook in the oil(Stir often,it can stick to pan easily)
5.Add the chilly powder,tomato and the puree and simmer for 10-15 minutes and close with the lid

Rajab Nisha showed us how to cook three different types of biryani,gobi 65,chicken 65,meeta rice,bread halwa and this brinjal thokku.... Definitely worth the time spent on cookout...For more cookouts,Check this group...

Here are the few shots during the cookout...

So it was a hottest sunny day in a farm house....

The whole barrel filled with the beverages

The people were asked to bring their knife and the cutter board...

Around 5 kilos of onion were given to cut 

I skipped the onion task and settled with tomatoes...


CFG didnt announce who is gonna cook in this cookout...I was too eager to know was Rajab Nisha who cooked non stop for 6 hours for 30+ people....She is garnishing the bread halwa
