Stuffed Brinjal fry – Kathrikai fry

I love brinjals particularly I love some dishes made of it. This whole brinjal is also my favourite. It is a perfect dish to have with Rice or variety rice. I will go well with Rice and sambar, dal, rasam

I also make Andhra style stuffed brinjal fry some times. But this fry is an instant one with the masala powders available at home. Instead of amchur powder, you can add lemon juice.
