Kathirikai Gothsu Recipe is a tangy gravy preparation of brinjal/eggplant that is cooked soft with the least amount of spices. Sambar powder is added which makes this recipe mouthwatering.
To balance the spicy flavours we have added a little bit of jaggery as well. The Onions, curry leaves, tamarind bring out the flavors of this wonderful dish that is traditionally served along with Ven Pongal.
Kathirikai Gothsu is made in many different ways across South India. Many people roast the brinjal until it is charred and then use it in the gothsu. Many fry the brinjal in oil and then use it. This is a simpler yet as tasty version of the Kathirikai Gothsu. There are a few recipes, that I never tweak and this is one of them – my mothers way of cooking it.
Serve Kathirikai Gothsu Recipe with Ven Pongal and South Indian Filter Coffee for a delicious South Indian breakfast.
