How to make brinjal curry for biryani?

To prepare the brinjal curry for biryani, first I have dry roasted the whole spices to prepare the homemade ground spice mix. I have tossed peanuts, sesame, peppercorns, fenugreek seeds, coriander seeds and dry red chilli in a pan until a nutty aroma comes out and then allowed the spices to cool down. I have pulsed the whole spices to a fine dust with the help of a grinder and kept it aside.

Then I have prepared an onion masala paste by preparing a paste with Onion, ginger, garlic and kept it aside.

South Indian people are fond of tangy taste in the curry with tamarind water. I have soaked the tamarind pulp in hot water for some time and then strained out the water for the curry.

Cut the brinjals into large pieces and shallow fry them till golden brown before adding into the gravy.

To make the brinjal curry for biryani, temper whole cumin seeds, mustard seeds and curry leaves and then add the onion masala paste and cook them until it starts releasing oil. Add tomatoes and cook them till mushy.

Then add the ground spice mix, tamarind water into the masala and cook them slowly. To cut the tanginess of tamarind, I have used little bit of jaggery into the gravy. It helps in balancing the taste nicely.

After this, add the cooked brinjal pieces into the masala and cook it until the brinjal pieces absorb the flavour of the masala.

Few people love dry brinjal masala curry, but I always prefer brinjal gravy for biryani. So, I have added water into the masala for gravy. I like the curry with thick consistency.
