Simple Eggplant Fry - Vankaya Vepudu

I was in a hurry to prepare something quickly  as it was getting late for dinner and yet wanted to try something new. I had absolutely no hopes on this recipe as I wasn't sure how it will come out. Somehow everything looked disappointing. I was so disheartened that I couldn't even focus on taking good pictures. But when we actually ate it, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the taste was heavenly and the eggplant pieces literally melted in our mouths. I would say, one of my best experiments ever. :) 

Eggplant- 5, wash and cut them into long strips
Onion - 1 small, cut into small pieces
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Garlic pods - 2
Coriander powder - 1/2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Turmeric- a pinch
Oil - 2 tbsp
Fresh coriander chopped - 1 tbsp

In a pan, add oil and when it is hot, add garlic pods and onion pieces and saute till onions are translucent. Switch off the heat and keep the pan aside to cool
In a mixie jar, add the ingredients from the pan, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder and Ginger garlic paste and grind coarsely and keep aside. (sorry the picture is not very pretty)
Now, In a pan remaining oil and when it is hot, add eggplant pieces, salt and turmeric and fry on medium heat till eggplant pieces turn soft but not mushy
Add the masala prepared earlier, sprinkle some water from the top, mix well and fry for 5 minutes on medium heat. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
Yummy eggplant fry is ready to  be served. Goes well with Roti and hot white rice!
