This recipe has been hanging in my draft for a very long time, i had no idea !
later this day, i was browsing through my draft and came across a few recipes that haven't been published for a very long time.I was quite busy and couldn't contribute time for the blog.so decided to make some changes in the blog design which almost took all my time, adding and deleting each and every blogging stuff available. you could notice , still the blog is incomplete. Iam working on it and hopefully it should be done in couple of days.
Now to the recipe:
This is an andhra style brinjal gravy, made with rich spices.

Dry roast peanuts,sesame seeds,coconut,coriander seeds and red chillies.
