Green Brinjal is a terrific vegetable that has the bold flavour that makes it a great choice for main dishes, side dishes, salads and even desserts. It has a firm and satisfying texture that makes it a popular substitute for meat in vegetarian dishes. With other vegetables it can be roasted or grilled.
- Brinjals are not good for long time storing. So, consume within a few days and store in a cool spot, away from direct sunlight.
- The inner white flesh turns brown quickly once its cut, so use it as soon as you cut them or refrigerate by placing the remaining on a bowl or plate, but avoid sealing, as it increases decay.
- Brinjals are a prominent part of Indian dry and gravy curries. Also used in lentil soups , stews and rice items. Can be roasted, grilled, baked and stir-fried. Look up the local and popular Vaangibath recipe.
