A close friend of mine is from Hyderabad and I always inspire her in cooking. She goes to work far distance, and reach home late in the evening, still she freshen up herself and freshly cook the dinner each day. I always inspire her energy and attitude towards the family and food. I have learnt many recipes from her which are traditional Andhra recipes. Aubergine Stir-Fry is one of her signature recipe and she call this as Vankaya Vepudu. This is a very yummy dish and we can either serve as sidedish or we can mix with white rice and have it.
