Brinjal Gothsu, we call it as Kathirikkai Bajji. This is an easy and simple gothsu recipe. It can be made quickly too as we are going to make this gothsu using pressure cooker. This gothsu makes a very good combination with idli and dosa.

Brinjal / Eggplant - 5 No.
Potato - 1 No.
Onion - 2 No.
Tomato - 2 No.
Green Chili - 1 No.
Sambar Powder - 1 tsp.
Red Chili Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Tamarind Extract - 3 tbsp.
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp.
Urad Dal - 1/2 tsp.
Curry Leaves - 2 Strings
Oil - 1 tsp.
Salt to taste

1. Finely chop onions, tomatoes and green chili. Peel the skin of potato and cut it into small cubes. Chop the brinjals into small pieces. Drop the brinjal and potato into salt + turmeric water as soon as you chop it. This will avoid darkening of the vegetables.
2. Put all the chopped vegetables in a pressure cooker and add sambar powder, chili powder, turmeric powder and salt. Add enough water and pressure cook for 5 to 6 whistles.
3. Wait till the pressure is completely released. Open the pressure cooker and strain the water from the vegetable and keep it aside. 
4. Mash the cooked vegetable using a masher, so that the vegetables are completely mashed. Once it is done, add the drained vegetable water and mix well. Place the pressure cooker on stove and cook it on a medium flame. Add tamarind extract and mix well.
5. Allow it to boil and season it with mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves. Mix well.
Easy and tasty Brinjal Gothsu / Kathirikkai Bajji is ready to serve with hot idlis or dosa
