Roasted eggplant is universally famous as it blends with many cuisine flavours. Nice tender eggplants when roasted slowly over the flame, absorbs the smoke and the pulp turns so soft that it melts in mouth. And when it is mixed with Indian Spices, the taste is so heavenly. That is why our Punjabi Baingan Bharta is so famous.

Roasted Eggplant is extensively used even in South Indian Cooking. Chutney of roasted eggplant is served along with breakfast in Tamil Nadu. In Andhra a very delicious chutney is made out of it in a traditional mortar and pestle. Apart from that they make this Vankaya Pachi Pulusu.

Vankaya means brinjal/eggplant in telugu. Pachi Pulusu means Raw Gravy, that is uncooked. This Vankaya Pachi Pulusu is often served with hot rice. The day when mom makes this, it is a feast for me. I eat it along with sambar rice, rasam rice and curd rice. In short I will start the meal with it and end it with it.

This Vankaya Pachi Pulusu tastes best when other ingredients like onion and green chillies are finely chopped. Addition of a bit more of asafoetida gives and extraordinary flavour.

The only challenge that lies in making this recipe is checking for the worms if present in the eggplant. Since we directly roast it without chopping we should cut open the roasted eggplant once it cools and check it. Once we are through this we are all set to go.

Let us see how to make this Vankaya Pachi Pulusu.
