Today I thought I should post a recipe on Brinjal (eggplant), the king of vegetables. I think brinjal is one of the few vegetables that is liked by most of them. Even GOD might love this vegetable.
I just love them in any form. I learnt this recipe from one of my friend, I liked it so much because it tastes like biriyani and it is so easy and fast to cook.
