Brinjal Potato Fry is a very simple recipe. This is very famous in Coimbatore. We prepare this along with Arisim Parupu (Dal Rice). The important ingredient is grated coconut which adds a unique and crunchy taste to the dish. I prefer to cut them lengthwise but you can even chop them in any shape or size. It’s very hard to find brinjal in the place where I live so whenever I find them I make sure to prepare this. Brinjal Potato goes well with sambar rice, curd rice, roti, etc but my preference is arisim parupu which is similar to sambar rice.
Adding grated coconut at the end gives a different taste to the dish so please don’t skip that part. You can make the same recipe by just using brinjal or potato but they both together give a unique taste.
