Sri lankan Eggplant (Brinjal) Pickle Recipe


Soak the mustard seeds in a little vinegar for about 30 minutes. While waiting, wash and slice the eggplant in rounds (optionally half circles). Rub tumeric powder and a little salt. Deep fry in cooking oil.
Remove to a colander and let it cool. Cut the red onions in length wise. Grind the soaked mustard seeds into a fine paste. Mix all the ingredients together. Cover up in a bowl for a short while and it will be ready to eat.
This pickle keeps well for a week or two in the refrigerator.
