badanekayi mosaru bajji or sutta badanekayi gojju

Badanekayi mosaru bajji or badanekayi mosaru gojju recipe explained with step by step pictures. This badanekayi mosaru bajji or curry is very tasty and goes very well with rice, roti or chapathi. Sutta badanekayi bajji or brinjal-yoghurt curry is prepared using eggplant, curd, green chili and coriander leaves.

This type of brinjal curry is in practice across Karavali (Mangalore-Udupi) region of Karnataka. But there a specific type of brinjal called "gulla badanekayi" or "Mattu gulla" is used, which is a very tasty brinjal I have ever tasted. I have used big purple brinjal, which I feel is the better choice when "gulla badane" is not available.

Brinjal or eggplant is burnt or charred in open flame to prepare this tasty recipe. Badanekayi translates to brinjal and mosaru bajji is a common name for these kind of yoghurt based curries. I have already posted alugadde mosaru bajji or potato-yoghurt curry, which follows similar recipe.
