Cooking veggies in Peanut based gravy always made me mouth-watering. Brinjals taste so good with peanuts & onions based curry. We can also make the same curry using capsicum instead of brinjal. Peanuts, sesame seeds and poppy seeds are the base to the underlying gravy. We will enjoy the coarse texture of these ingredients in each bite. Try this Brinjal Peanut Curry with any Indian Bread of your choice and let me know your experience!
