Brinjal Podi curry (Kathirikkai Podi Pota Curry) is one of my all time favourite poriyal variety. The curry powder which we prepare for Sundal is actually very good for many poriyal varieties. The curry powder is very handy and it enriches the taste of the poriyal. Many of us have the habit of making this curry powder in large quantities and use it for many different poriyal varieties. Brinjal poriyal, instead of adding usual red chilli powder or sambar powder, if you add the curry powder this poriyal will taste very very good. We can serve this podi pota brinjal curry with any SouthIndian Main Course or we can also mix that curry with rice along with a spoon of ghee and enjoy the taste!
