Badanekayi palya or brinjal onion stir fry is prepared using brinjal, onion, tamarind, salt and jaggery. This is a very simple, quick and tasty palya or stir fry recipe. Or I would say this is a perfect recipe for bachelors or beginners.

I learnt this recipe from my Mother-in-law. She prepares it with coconut oil. Even I like it with coconut oil. If you do not like or if you are not used to coconut oil, then replace it with any other oil of your choice. I have posted vangi bath recipe, badanekayi ennegayi and sutta badanekayi gojju (charred brinjal curry) recipe using brinjal. Soon I will try to post many more recipes using brinjal or eggplant.
