We are entering the 3rd week of Blogging marathon#60 and for this week I chose Family recipes.Today I sharing you a kottu curry made with baby eggplant and chickpeas.This is one of my mom's signature recipe and she calls this one as kottu curry.Usually kottu is made with lentil and veggies but here no lentil is used and she made this way.Whenever I make this kootu never able to get the exact taste of her.
While drafting the post I was emotional and tears were rolling down.I lost my mother couple of months back and its hard to cope up with her loss.She was my friend,philosopher,guide,mentor,still couldn't believe she is no more.The cooking knowledge what I have is inherited from her. She was an amazing cook and tried to do lot of experiments in food.
She worked as Tamil Teacher for 33 years.Though she was working never compromised on food and cooked an elaborate meal for us everyday.She made varieties when it comes to food.She loved painting,drawing rangoli and got a very nice and beautiful voice so liked to sing.
Coming to the recipe,its a simple curry made in few minutes,whenever we wanted to have some comfortable lunch she made along with rasam and some fry and pappad.This kottu curry can be served as an accompaniment or can be mixed along with rice.But we prefer to mix it along with rice and made it for last weekend lunch and served it potato fry and pappad.Off to the recipe.............
- White chickpeas can also used instead of black one.
- The consistency can be personal choice,if you want it to be in thicker side add little more coconut for the paste.
